He was said to be dispersing the protesting traders last Friday when he fired a shot, killing her colleague on the spot.

Shop owners, commuters and residents reportedly fled for safety during the incident as efforts to revive the victim by her colleagues failed.

Tribune Online gathered that the killer-cop and four other colleagues were drafted from the ‘B’ Division to quell the protest staged against a self-imposed chairman of petty traders which majority of the traders were against.

The State Police Commissioner, Mr. Adeyinka Adeleke, confirmed the death of the officer on Monday,
adding that 15 suspects were in detention for further interrogation.
