Police Officer Tortures 21-year-old Carpenter To Death In Lagos [Photo]


An Assistant Superintendent of Police, Salawu Kazeem, has been arrested and detained by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly torturing a 21-year-old carpenter, Ganiyu Akinyemi, to death in the Aboru area of Lagos State.

It was gathered that Kazeem was attached to the Ogun State Police Command headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta, Ogun State, but lived on Omifisoye Avenue, Ago Estate, Aboru.

Ganiyu, who hailed from Aiyetoro in the Yewa North Local Government Area of Ogun State, was staying with his parents in the area.

Monday at about 5pm, the ASP and four men had come to the deceased’s apartment on Victor Fagbemi Street, Aboru.

They had reportedly accused the carpenter of stealing three T-shirts in a house where he went to work the previous week.

Source revealed that the house, where Ganiyu allegedly stole the shirts, was also where the ASP lived.

It was gathered that the ASP arrested Ganiyu and told his family that he would detain him at the nearest police station.

However, when the family members went to the Oke Odo Police Division around 7pm, the 21-year-old was not found there, while no report had been made in the station.

The family members were called on the telephone around 3am on Tuesday that he was admitted at the Oke Odo General Hospital.

He had reportedly sustained injuries on the knees, hands and forehead.

When the family members got to the hospital, they were said to have been met by one of the men who followed the ASP to the house. They were also said to have been told by a doctor that Ganiyu was dead.

The matter was thereafter reported to the Oke Odo Police Division on Tuesday and the ASP and two of the men were arrested, while two others escaped.
