Murder of two Policemen: Businessman raises alarm over plot to truncate investigation

Two months after the police arrested five persons in connection with the killing of two policemen in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State, an indication emerged on Tuesday that some persons have begun plans to truncate the police investigation into the murder case.

It was gathered that a Lagos-based businessman, Kamorudeen Lamina, raised the alarm, urging the police to speed up the investigation processes and bring the perpetrators to book as some people are aiming to sabotage their efforts.

Lamina, who disclosed this on Monday while addressing newsmen, in Ikeja, Lagos, claimed that the plotters were making attempts to use him to blackmail the Police and some traditional rulers in Ikorodu.

He said: “Some people are trying to cover up the killing and truncate investigation into it, by resorting to blackmailing the police and some influential people,using my name. If anyone knows the killers, he should assist the Police in their investigation rather than resort to blackmail.

“I have received several calls from Nigeria and overseas of a report by a blogger, who accused me of arresting the wrong people. I am not a policeman and I don’t have anything to do with the arrest of those fingered in the death of the two policemen. The Police must have had enough evidence before they arrested and charged the suspects to court.

“I have never evaded police invitation due to the nature of my job and I have contacted the Investigating Police Officer, IPO. He denied linking me to anybody who killed the policemen,” Lamina stated.
