The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, has said a policeman has been killed and two others injured in an incident in the Ijegun area of Lagos State.

Some operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad had gunned down a shop owner, identified as Busayo Owoodun, in the area, following which a mob seized one of the policemen and insisted that he must be lynched.

The operatives reportedly opened fire on the suspect and one of the bullets hit Biliki, who was in her shop.

The 30-year-old tailor, fondly called Biliki, was reportedly pregnant when she was killed.

“The woman was rushed to hospital where she died. We have taken one of the men. He has been beaten and we want you to come down to see things for yourself,” a resident said.
