In a press statement, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Benjamin Hundeyin, said that an ongoing investigation has revealed that the shooting was accidental and involved an off-duty police officer, who has been identified as Inspector Mohammed Hussini, serving at the State Headquarters, Ikeja.
The image revealed that the command was waiting for the Inspector to turn himself in, adding that a manhunt had been launched for the fleeing celebrant.
His words: “On 24th April 2022, at 10:PM, a shooting incident occurred at La Silver Bar, Egbeda which resulted in the death of two persons and injuries to others. Upon receipt of the information, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi, ordered an immediate full-scale investigation into the circumstances surrounding the unfortunate incident.

CP Alabi has given firm assurances that everyone found culpable in the sad and unavoidable incident will be dealt with in accordance with the provisions of the law.”
