Men identified as members of the special anti-robbery squad (SARS) of the Nigeria police force have reportedly killed a man in the Ilupeju area of Lagos state. 

A witness told TheCable that incident happened on Ajisegiri street in Ilupeju, Odiolowo Ojuwoye local council development area of Lagos, on Monday morning.

The victim was simply identified as Francis, while residents said he had gone about his daily job of cleaning when he was killed. 

“The guy was in the area to sweep the compounds of his customers,” a witness told TheCable. 

“The Ajisegiri area is notorious because of these boys who come there to smoke, and the area has always been raided by police. But this morning none of the boys was there, just this man going about his business. He was shot and he died almost immediately.” 

Bala Elkana, spokespsman of the Lagos police command, did not immediately respond to a message seeking an update on the matter.

In March, there was a nationwide outrage following the killing of Kolade Johnson, a football fan, in Onipetesi area of Lagos.

Johnson had left his on a Sunday evening to join friends at Kingstine-Jo, a nearby bar, to watch the live English premiership match between Hotspur and Tottenham.

His killers were later identified as Ogunyemi Olalekan, an inspector, and Godwin Orji, a sergeant who have now been dismissed from the force.
