A 45-year-old Lagos businessman, Jelili Bakare, has been shot dead by a trigger-happy policeman identified as Jonathan.
Bakare was killed because he demanded an explanation why the policeman wanted to search him.
The deceased was relaxing at Quinox Lounge in Sangotedo, Ajah, when Jonathan directed him to present himself for a search.
Mr Jonathan, however, became furious and opened fire when the victim simply asked for an explanation.
The Commissioner of Police Lagos State, Hakeem Odumosu, and some senior officers have since paid a condolence visit to the late Bakare’s family and prosecution has been ordered.
