Sergeant Eze Aiwansoba shoots woman in the mouth

The identity of the Police officer who shot a female on the mouth in Lagos on Thursday has been revealed by the Lagos State Police Command, OYOGist.com has gathered.

The shooter, pictured below, is allegedly a police Sergeant named Eze Aiwansoba of the Special Protection Unit base.

The victim is said to be the girlfriend of the police officer who shot her in the mouth. A video of the lady with serious mouth gashes with severe bleeding went viral yesterday night after users attributed the attack to the Police attack on unarmed peaceful protesters.

However, the police command said the incident is unconnected to the #EndSARS protest. While the Lagos Police Command has released his details through a statement and commenced an investigation into the issue, users have also gone on social media to expose his identity and declare him wanted.

Read the statement below:

“At about 9.21pm of Thursday, 8th October, 2020, one Joy Eze living at Owonikoko Street, Idiagbon, College Road, Ogba, Lagos, was shot at the mouth by a policeman, who was later identified to be one Sergeant Eze Aiwansoba attached to the Special Protection Unit, Base 16, Ikeja, Lagos State, after a fierce argument between the duo who are in a relationship.

“As at the time of the incident, the identity of the policeman was unknown until the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, ordered the Divisional Police Officer, Ikeja, to trace the whereabouts of the victim, ascertain her health condition and get more information on the incident and identify the policeman for further necessary actions.

“Based on the preliminary investigation, the said police sergeant was off duty and not issued with a police rifle or arms as at the time of the incident, hence the Police’s concern on the ownership and/or possession of the arms he used in perpetrating the act.

“The Commissioner of Police has ordered that the fleeing policeman, who is attached to another police formation within the state, be arrested by all means and made to face the consequences of his criminal act.

“While the CP condemns the act, the command will not in any way leave any stone unturned in getting justice for the victim and sustain the ethics and Standard Operating Procedure of the Nigeria Police Force; and protect the fundamental human rights of all and sundry across the state.

“Similarly, the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, has appealed to all Lagosians especially protesters across the state, to maintain law and order while they embark on peaceful protests as the police will do everything possible not to infringe on their rights.”
