The Lagos State Police Command said it has identified the police officer who shot a young man, Toheeb Eniafe, at a petrol station on Wednesday.

This was made known in a statement by the state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin on Thursday.

He said, “The person behind the shooting has been identified as a police officer serving at Special Protection Unit (SPU) Base 17, Lion Building, Lagos.

“Investigation is still ongoing and further findings will be made available.

He was reported to have been shot dead while he and some others were resisting the move by some security agents to buy fuel without joining the queue.
