The stated Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement on Tuesday although a truck driver was shot, policemen were not responsible.

The reports further stated that the driver was shot by policemen and that the victim died.

Oyeyemi said, “The command, for clarification purpose wishes to state that the perpetrators of the dastardly act, though they are security operatives, are not policemen, and that the victim, contrary to what is being reported is alive and receiving treatment in a hospital.

“Commissioner of Police Lanre Bankole has visited the victim in the hospital and he has vowed to do everything possible to bring the perpetrators to book because the action is a flagrant display of impunity which has no place in our laws.”
