An officer of the Special Anti Robbery Squad has been arrested by the police for killing an undergraduate, Joseph Eidonojie-Ugbeni a student of the polytechnic in Edo State.

It was learnt that a stray bullet from the SARS officers, who were chasing a suspected Internet fraudster and shooting sporadically at the Ogoja Market along LASU-Igando Road hit the decease in his back head.

The suspect dumped the body of Joseph in the boot of the fraudster’s car and drove it to their head quarters.
After the Cousin of the deceased who was with him when he was shot reported the matter, the police arrested the SARS officer on Friday. Also, , Saheed Sanni a legal practitioner for the family petition the Inspector-General of Police on the case to demand justice for the victim.

According to a source who craved anonymity said, “Badoo lives in that community and is popular; the SARS officers also know him. He was not their target that day. They had actually conducted a raid and arrested some people. They were leaving when they sighted him in his car. They called his name and he quickly abandoned his car and fled.

 “The Badoo they were chasing showed up on Friday at the SARS office with his lawyer and parents. I met the Officer-in-Charge of SARS as well. They shot my son in the head and they claimed that he had a gun and that they shot him in self-defence. How is that possible when he was shot in the head from behind? All I want now is that the police should release the post-mortem result and the police report on the incident.”

The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, made it known that the case has been transferred to the homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for discreet investigation.
