A village head and three others have been arrested by the police in Lagos at Oshoko in Ibeju-Lekki area of the state over the alleged murder of a police inspector.
 
According to Punch Metro, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Fatai Owoseni, told journalists on Wednesday in Lagos that the homicide occurred in 2016.

“On Nov. 25, 2016, one Insp. Musa Sunday, attached to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, had disappeared in Ibeju-Lekki while performing his responsibility.

“During an anti-kidnapping patrol, Insp. Sunday and other members of his team were alerted to a fight between two families which they responded to.

“Getting to the crime scene, unfortunately and callously, one of the communities involved turned against the SARS team and at the end of the day, Insp. Sunday did not return.

“The next day, I led a detective team to the community to appeal to the religious leaders, traditional heads and members of the community to release the policeman but they denied having him in their custody.

“With the technical support of Intelligent Response Team (IRT) headed by DSP Philip and sustained detective activity, as we speak, Insp. Sunday’s body has been recovered with his AK-47 rifle which was buried somewhere along the waterway.

“Four suspects have been arrested, including the Baale of Oshoko village,” Owoseni said.
 
The police commissioner said that investigation revealed that the village head led other suspects, including two of his sons who are still at large, to take an oath of secrecy at a shrine.
 
He said that the arrest of the village head would send a clear signal that nobody is above the law, adding that the police would carry out its statutory duty regardless of the personality involved.
 
Owoseni said that the suspects would soon be arraigned in court.
