– CP calls for restraint in giving any form of extraneous colouration
The Lagos State Police Command has commenced an investigation into the early morning fire at the Akere Motor Spare Parts Market, Tolu, Olodi Apapa, Lagos.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said the fire which started around 0300hrs was put out by a combined team of officers from the Tolu Police Division and the Lagos State Fire Service.
He added that sadly, a 65-year-old security guard lost his life in the incident.
“Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command, CP Idowu Owohunwa, has urged Lagosians to remain calm as the State Criminal Investigation Department has been directed to take over investigation towards unravelling the true circumstances surrounding the attack,” he said.
According to him, the CP equally calls for restraints in giving any form of extraneous colouration to the incident, while assuring that the outcome of the investigation will be made public.
