A police inspector, Erin Ayodeji, attached to Surulere Anti-kidnapping Unit, and an unidentified passerby have been killed during a protest to end SARS in Lagos on Monday. Two other inspectors were critically wounded during the violent attack on their unit.
The unidentified passerby died from a stray bullet from the protesters, while Insp. Ekei Joshua and Insp. Peter Agabi was receiving treatment at Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja.
The protesters came in their numbers with the intent to break into the station at Surulere unit and free some of the convicted criminals.
