Police shoots Lagos laundryman for snatching colleague’s lover'

A Lagos-based laundryman, Blessing Demian, has demanded justice after he was allegedly shot in the leg by a policeman in the Oke-Afa, Isolo area of the state.

Punch Metro gathered that Demian was coming back from work on September 14 around 9.45pm when he was allegedly shot in his right leg by a policeman, Kenneth Kadire, of the Ejigbo Police Station, for allegedly marrying a woman, whom his colleague once had an affair with.

It was gathered that the woman, who allegedly had an affair with one of Kadire’s colleagues, left the officer to marry Demian, a decision that did not go down well with the cop.

Demian told our correspondent that the cop shot him in the leg for refusing to refund the money that his colleague allegedly spent on the woman, adding that Kadire vowed to kill him.

The 30-year-old, who noted that the Divisional Police Officer of the Ejigbo Police Station, where he reported the case, was furious with Kadire, added that although the station initially paid his medical bills, he was later abandoned.

He added that he had not been able to go to work since the incident and insisted on getting justice.

When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana said  Kadire would be punished for his professional misconduct.
