NSCDC investigates killing of operative by colleague in Lagos


Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has begun investigation into alleged killing of one of its operatives by his colleague at Lagos Deep Offshore Logistics (LADOL) Free Zone, Epe Expressway.

The NSCDC made this known in a statement on Tuesday by its spokesman, Emmanuel Okeh.

The corps said the officer involved, Innocent Oshemi, had been stripped of his arms and is currently in detention.

Oshemi allegedly shot and killed another NSCDC personnel on Tuesday and wounded a Korean employee at the fabrication and integration yard of Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI).

He was said to have killed his colleague following an argument and shortly afterwards opened fire on the Korean who had been operating a crane.

Eyewitnesses said the Korean was not involved in the altercation.

NSCDC Commandant-General, Abdullahi Mohammadu, said adequate punitive action would be taken against the officer involved.

“Investigation into the remote causes of the incident is ongoing as a committee has been set up to critically look into the matter as the officer involved had already been stripped of his arms and is currently in detention,” he said.
