The Lagos State Police Command has detained two police officers who went on an illegal duty, in which a civilian lost his life.

The Command’s spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, made this known in a statement on Saturday.

Hundeyin said that the two officers, whose names and ranks were not given, were members of the State Taskforce.

He said that the officers went on the illegal operation on Wednesday, in the company of some civilians.

According to Hundeyin, the illegal team came under attack from motorcycle riders, resulting in the death of one of the civilians.

“While disciplinary actions have commenced on the already detained police officers, search is on for their civilian accomplices.

“Investigations have commenced to identify, arrest and prosecute the perpetrators of this dastardly act,” he said.
