Four men have been arrested for allegedly beating a officer to death in Dalemo, Sango, in the Ado-Odo-Ota Local Government Area.

According to the state police command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, the four arrested men identified as Jelili Ismaila, 22; Amidu Bankole, 34; Elijah Samson, 36; and Moses Proboye, 34, were reportedly hired by a truck driver who had an argument with the deceased police officer and his colleague.

In a statement released by Oyeyemi he said the deceased constable and one other were escorting their principal from Idah in Kogi State to Lagos State when the incident happened.

“Preliminary investigation revealed that the deceased officer and one other escorted their principal from Idah in Kogi State to Lagos State. On their way passing through Sango Ota, a truck driver, Jelili Ismaila, drove dangerously and almost pushed their vehicle off the road.

While trying not to hit the vehicle conveying the officers, the truck entered a pothole as a result of which its tyre got punctured.

This made the two policemen to come down and caution the truck driver to always be mindful of other road users. But the driver accused them of being at fault, thereby mobilizing hoodlums who attacked the officers and their principal with weapons and beat the deceased to a coma.
