The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, on Wednesday confirmed the killing of three children and their mother in an uncompleted church building at Agbowa, near Ikorodu.

Mr. Owoseni said that the police was called to the murder scene at about 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

“The incident happened at about 3 a.m. this morning at Agbowa in Ikorodu.

“The three murdered children were aged four, five and nine.

“The mother of the children was also wounded and later died in the hospital,” Mr. Owoseni said.

He said the police was yet to identify the motive behind the murder, adding that the command had swung into to bring the hoodlums to book.

“We want to seize this opportunity to assure the public that we will continue to increase our visibility.

        U are very correct. In in developed countries presidential candidates forge certificates or lie to decieve d public before hiring the best lawyers and bribing the Judges to get a favourable verdict…and of course threaten the citizen litigant with terrorists so he/she drops the case.

        I agree with you, but the police’s comments is irritating.

    Banning from mounting illegal checkpoints amounts to being forced into invisibility. So if the police are now promising more visibility, Nigerians should expect more checkpoints.
