According to Police source, the police sergeant identified only as Lucky who was arrested for embarking on illegal duty allegedly attempted to commit suicide by drinking poison while in detention.

The sergeant who was attached to Ikotun Police Station and two others were said to have been apprehended while they were extorting money from young people coming out of banking halls.

The activities of the policemen were said to have been reported to the Area M Commander, Egbeda/Idimu, who ordered that the men be arrested by the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in charge of Ikotun.

Commenting on the incident, a Police source said, “Lucky tried to kill himself because he had sent people to beg the Area M Commander, but the man refused. The area commander vowed to drag Lucky before the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fatai Owoseni.”

It was learnt that Sergeant Lucky who was a former driver to the Area M Commander was transferred from Area M to Ikotun Police Station because he was fond of harassing people coming out from banking halls along Car Wash Bus Stop in the Egbeda axis of Lagos.
