…Killer Policeman turns himself-in three days after

The Ondo State Police Command, on Thursday, arrested the policeman, who allegedly shot dead a truck driver in Uso, Akure-Owo Expressway in Owo Local Government Area of the state.

The alleged killer policeman, identified as Sergeant Idowu Omosuyi, is attached to the Federal Highway Patrol. He allegedly shot the truck driver, Ado Saleh, in the head at close range following a heated argument between them on Monday.

The incident led to a protest by other truck drivers and residents of the town, who demanded that the killer policeman must be brought to justice.

Sergeant Omosuyi was alleged to have dropped his gun and ran away immediately after committing the crime and was declared wanted by the state police command.

Other members of Omosuyi’s team had already been arrested and detained at the command’s headquarters in Akure.

The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr Femi Joseph, said in a statement that the culprit reported at the command headquarters and was already facing orderly room trial.

Femi said “The Ondo State Police Command is pleased to inform the general public that the errant policeman, Sergeant Idowu Omosuyi, who shot and killed a haulage driver at a checkpoint in Uso, near Owo, a few days ago, has turned himself in.

“He surrendered himself this afternoon (Thursday) to a team of investigators constituted by the Commissioner of Police, Ondo State, to probe the incident. He is presently undergoing orderly room trial at the state command headquarters, Akure. This development will no doubt enable us to conclude our investigation speedily and charge the suspect as soon as possible.” Femi in the statement reassured that the command would never shield any of its personnel who committed any infraction or illegality.
