Media house indeed Mtchewww I believe he was not settled well on their daily 50 task force collection oga cop vex shoot sergeant. Next story pls

Which one is cop and sergeant... Police murdered Olopa abeg ... Things fall apart... Racist cop or what do we call him? This one weak me oooooooo Na dem, dem. Wetin concern agbero with overload. Bar man, one cold Heineken for everyone in the bar🕺 Peter goat don chop Peter yam... 😂😂😂 Nha stray bullet 😁. That’s their language not shoot, police don’t shot people dey call the act “stray”🤣🤣 modafukaz

A case of dog eat dog. Karma dem just dey start Wahala dey o... it's funny, maybe it's better that way Cop ko LPD ni Finally. News I can relate to. Just keep shooting. Soon the war would be with the forces not the pple All these cops that have psychological problems sef.... Guns, they don't know how to use. All they know is drink, collect bribes and batter innocent citizens.

That's blood of the innocent turning them against each other That is draw game Hahaha Dogs eats Dogs only in Nigeria Did he died ? They can do more When u see some police men u will imagine how such ppl can safeguard any life or resolve any issue, d police force need a serious attention What kind of wacked headline is this,so the sergeant is what?

It is finished Abeg all those olopa no need gun again 🤷.. wtf is wrong with them 🤦🏻‍♀️ Which one be Cops, and which one be Sergeant again? Omo, naija matter don leave main road enter bush. These police 👮‍♀️ killings must be stopped! Have they started killing themselves? We don’t do that here, it’s olopa or AK not cop

The other cop doesn't have a rank? 😏 What is going on in this country? Na money, no be another thing. That N50 bribe na cause Na police go settle this matter by themself Punch Newspaper is a real gutter newspapers company. Fulani herdsmen and Boko haram terrorists newspaper. Dear , this is Nigeria. Which one is 'Cop' ? Let's keep it real and original, biko. Cop ko, Pop ni.

Wack journalism. This has been settled We should find out the cause of the fight is not money When you collect cursed money. So sorry Karma join police WhatsApp group Gambari pa Fulani. Cop keh! Police kill police. Why make it look better?... This country is sick.. Eish Now they killing themselves! I think this is getting weigh too much. This same thing recently happened in Rivers State, now Lagos again. Police kill police: The headline suddenly changed, not 'Police shot and killed civilian' I think he was planning of jumping into the river at the bridge. RIP to the dead.

Sad event, one too many nobody deserve to be a victim of this unethical practice. This na their matter 🤣🤣🤣 Last week or there about, a police officer was also shot dead by his senior colleague while he was trying to control some protesters at the station gate, now this. The evil that men do sometimes lives with them. People’s swear at the police is just too much for what they do

COP for where ! Police jam police, akara mama throway🎵🎵🎵🎵 We have cops in Nigeria? There shall be nothing like medical report of insanity: blood for blood an eye for an eye. An inspector is old and trained enough to be disciplined and control his emotions when armed. Another trigger happy maniac. Do they even periodically check the mental state of their officers? Does the Nigerian Police do a thorough mental check of their recruits? Some kids are now fatherless because... PoliceNG

Cop my ass 😂😭🤣😹😹 Since when 9ja start to the use cops? *olopa Cop or Cup . I’m confused here. Nigeria police cop ke. Abi you people are not okay 🤣😂😂 Shooting sporadically? Wow thank God no other innocent life was lost Nigeria a country with no future Which one is cop, better call them their name Who will solve this matter ?

Very very bad How did Cop shoot sergeant in Lagos? The bullet come from America Ni? Abi olopa shoot olopa Now who go solve this matter? Confusion in the camp of the enemies

Sounds good. Liking themselves is better off 'Eedi' or maybe Karma... anyway RIP And when he was trying to escape no other COP there to kill him as well. That would have made the headline more interesting. When you accept foolish people what do you expect. A lawyer stays in school for 7years just to understand the law And some with 8 weeks training you're giving him a gun.what do you expect...

Oh dear.... Police ppl need to calm down....haba!! Cop ko plate ni This bad blood must go in whatever way ever Which one is Cop, no be police dey Nigeria or Olopa 🤷🏾‍♂️... They will eat their own flesh and drink their blood This is lazy reporting. This is not the actual account of what happened. We do have cop/cops we have police, I repeat we have police!

What’s really going on in this world now, I pray I and my family survive this year, in God will trust .

Please be more professional. Must you put any pics if you don't have. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Nigeria police has the highest rates of illiterates in d world, they lack orientation and its very alarming.

Hmm These people are jokers Showing our professionalism and nature of government in Nigeria. COPS? 🤡🤡🤡🤡 Ole gbe , Ole gba What is happening? Police shooting fellow Police is becoming too rampant in Nigeria! Too many automatic rifles in the hands of cops. There’s need for policemen to undergo psychological evaluation before they can carry guns. I still don’t understand why a policeman on beat carries an AK47...give him ‘kondo’.

He must be subjected to some mental medical check-up. This happened in my area (Akoka, Bariga), the officer shot sporadically in different directions and even at people's houses thus creating pandemonium for residents who thought it was robbers.
