LASTMA officials kick over reported death of killer F-SARS operative



The Lagos State Police Command has been asked to show incontrovertible evidence of the death of an operative of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Inspector Olukunle Olonade, who allegedly killed an official of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, Rotimi Adeyemo, on Wednesday.

Some LASTMA officers, who spoke to PUNCH Metro on Thursday, urged the police authorities to be sincere in their investigations, adding that only justice for the dead would put the matter to rest.

This is just as the state Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, ordered that Olonade should be tried posthumously and dismissed from the police force.

PUNCH Metro had reported on Thursday that 46-year-old Adeyemo stopped the police inspector after he allegedly contravened the state traffic law while driving a Toyota Highlander SUV.
