A tragic incident unfolded in the Okokomaiko area of Ojo local government in Lagos State as a Police Inspector lost his life during a fight with naval officers. The officer, whose name has not been released, was on routine patrol with four other colleagues when the altercation occurred.


The incident, which occurred on the afternoon of Saturday, June 22, 2024, involved the deceased officer, his four colleagues and some naval officers.

The scuffle ensued as the police officers who were said to be on routine patrol along the Igbo-Elerin area of Ojo accosted a commercial motorcycle rider and his passenger over an alleged traffic offence.

Though the commercial motorcycle rider and his passenger were dressed in mufti, they introduced themselves to the cops as naval officers while resisting arrest.

The situation quickly escalated into a heated argument between the two parties with tempers flaring on both sides, an eyewitness, Shola Shodiya narrated to Daily Trust.

“It later degenerated into a fight between the policemen and the rider who later turned to be naval personnel,” he said.
