The Police in Lagos said it has begun an investigation to track down the killers of a naval rating in the Ajeromi-Ifelodun Local Government Area of the state on Sunday.
Reports say a naval rating was shot dead by gunmen while he was alone in the community.
The deceased, until his death, was serving at the Lagos Logistics Depot of the Navy.
According to reports, the deceased colleagues had been threatening to avenge his death.
The threat, it was gathered, had thrown residents and business owners operating in the community into a panic.
It was learnt that the rating’s corpse had been deposited at the Nigerian Navy Hospital morgue in Ojo.
Spokesman of the Lagos State Police Command, Benjamin Hundeyin called on people in the community to go about their normal activities without fear.
Hundeyin added that a joint operation involving the Lagos State Police Command and the Nigerian Navy had commenced to track down the suspects.
Hundeyin said, “We have started an investigation but there has been no arrest yet. The naval authorities are aware and we are working together to unravel the circumstances that led to the shooting.”
