Soldiers attached to the 81 Division have beaten a police officer to death in the Ojo area of Lagos State. 

The soldiers, who were on a bus, reportedly got stuck in traffic around the Trade Fair area of the Lagos Badagry Expressway.

This resulted in a heated argument with the soldiers reportedly taking some of the police officers to the barracks where they beat and tortured one of them to death.  

The Acting Deputy Director 81 Division Public Relations, Major Olaniyi Osoba, confirmed the incident today said the Division is already in touch with the Lagos State Police Command to resolve the matter. 

While describing the incident as  highly regrettable given the Division’s disposition and zero tolerance for any misconduct.” 

According to him, the Division has instituted a Board of Inquiry to probe the incident adding that at the end of the investigation, anyone found culpable will be made to face the full wrath of the disciplinary provisions.  

The Lagos State Police Command spokesman, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, equally confirmed the incident.
