Killer police officer: Daramola Tosin

As shocking as it sounds, a police corporal, Daramola Tosin, has allegedly killed another police officer, inspector Lateef Shuaib. 

According to a report by Punch, corporal Tosin who has since been dismissed was attached to the Ekiti Police Division in the Ekiti Local Government Area of Kwara State. 

Tosin allegedly shot Shuaib after secretly withdrawing up to N300,000 from Shuaib’s bank account without his consent. 

It was gathered that Shuaib had entrusted Tosin with his Automated Teller Machine card when he fell ill.

The inspector was reportedly defecating when Tosin shot him dead with an AK-47 rifle and buried him at the back of a police barracks. 

The victim’s sister, Sherifat Hammed, was said to have reported to the Osi Police Station on May 10, 2016, that Shuaib had been missing since May 6. She suspected Tosin because her elder brother informed her when he was sick that he entrusted his UBA ATM card to the suspect to help him in withdrawing money. 

Commenting on the matter, the Kwara state commissioner of Police, Sam Okaula, said he ensured that discreet investigation was conducted, adding that the suspect was arrested. The CP said, “We do not condone crime. 

We go after anyone including members of the Force who go out of their way to commit crime. We will investigate and prosecute them if found culpable and ensure we gain conviction. This particular dastardly act will not be an exception.” 

The suspect was arraigned on Tuesday, June 8  before a magistrate’s court in Ilorin.

The magistrate, Mr. Nurudeen Adeyanju, who did not take the plea of the accused, said his court lacked jurisdiction to entertain the matter since it was a murder charge. 

He added that it should be handled by the high court. He however ordered that the accused be remanded at the Federal Prison, Mandalla. The case was adjourned till June 21, 2016, for mention.
