NDLEA Officer kills civil servant with matchet at LG Secretariat

A staff of Alimosho Local Area of Lagos State simply identified as Samuel Koro-toe was today stabbed to death by an officer of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA.

The incident happened at the secretariat of Agege Local Government Area.

Late Okoro-toe, an activist, was at the Council for the ongoing celebration of the 40th-year anniversary of the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees, NULGE, across the country.

According to source, who captured the moment on camera, and posted it on social media, trouble erupted after some NDLEA officers, who have office in the council fired several shots into the air. They were said to be heavily drunk.

Their action was said to have been met with indignation from Council’s staff, particularly NULGE Excos, who protested against the vile act.

The reaction infuriated the NDLEA officers and they went overboard shooting sporadically and stabbing Koro-toe with matchet. The latter was pronouced dead on the scene while the perpetrator fled but his colleagues were arrested by the police whose arrival averted a reprisal attack.
