A yet-to-be-identified inspector has been killed by a sergeant in the Oke-Odo area of Lagos State.
It was gathered that the inspector died on Sunday despite efforts by doctors to rescue him.
Confirming the incident, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, said the sergeant was quarrelling with other tenants over the time to be closing the gate.
He added that the inspector, who was also a tenant, intervened to stop the sergeant and was killed in the process.
Elkana said, “The incident happened on Thursday, June 4, 2020, but the inspector died on June 7, 2020. They are tenants living in the same building. The sergeant was quarrelling with the three other tenants when the inspector intervened to use his power to stop the sergeant but ended up being killed by the sergeant.
“They were quarrelling over when and when not to open the gate of their house. After macheting his leg and other parts of his body, he was placed on admission in a hospital but died yesterday (Sunday).
“We are still investigating but for now, the investigation has revealed that the incident was caused by a domestic quarrel.”
