A jealous policeman-lover, who insensately shot his lover in the mouth following a quarrel, has been given the boot.
Also, trigger-happy Sgt. Eze Aiwansoba is being prosecuted in court for attempted murder.
The dismissed policeman is facing trial at a Yaba Magistrates’ Court for attempted murder of Joy Ndubueze.
The Lagos State Police Commissioner, Mr Hakeem Odumosu, ordered the dismissal of the cop and his orderly room trial and was consequently found guilty of the crime.
Aiwansoba had shot his lover in the mouth at Allen Avenue area of Ikeja, Lagos in October 2020.
“The police officer attached to the Special Protection Unit, Base 16, Ikeja, was sacked for firing and attempting to kill his lady friend, Joy Ndubueze, on 8th October, 2020, at Salvation Road, Opebi, Ikeja of Lagos State.
“The incident was referred to the State Criminal Investigation Department of the Lagos State Police Command for investigation where it was revealed that the ex-policeman has a case to answer.
“The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, ordered for the orderly room trial of the suspect where he was found guilty and recommended for dismissal.
“The approval for his dismissal was contained in a letter numbered PC. 458465/LS/DFA/2, dated 2nd February, 2021.
“After his dismissal, Ex-Sergeant Eze Aiwansoba, was transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department for prosecution via letter numbered AR:3100/LS/SPM/Vol.2/311 dated 3rd February, 2021,” the Command‘s spokesman, SP Muyiwa Adejobi, said on Monday in a statement, a copy of which was obtained by Persecondnews.
The State CID had written a letter to the Director of Public Prosecution, Lagos State, for legal advice which was eventually replied, and advised that the sergeant should be charged to court for attempted murder in contravention of Section 230 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 (Revised).
Odumosu assured the public that no errant policeman or woman would be spared in the fight against acts of criminality and professional misconduct among officers and men.
