The Lagos State Police Command has dismissed Sergeant Eze Aiwansoba for shooting his girlfriend, Joy Ndubueze, in the mouth in an apparent attempt to kill her.

It would be recalled that in the incident which took place on Salvation Bus Stop, Opebi Road, in the Ikeja area of the state, Ndubueze was seen in a viral video bleeding heavily after she was shot in her mouth by Sergeant Aiwansoba whom she had broken up with.

While the policeman fled the scene after the act, passersby rescued the bleeding lady and took her to a private hospital in the same area for treatment.

The victim told police officers that she was in a relationship with Aiwansone, and they were having an argument at the bus stop before the Sergeant shot her in the mouth with his gun and immediately fled the scene on October 8, 2020.

The Sergeant, who had gone into hiding, was however arrested by his elder brother who is an Inspector of police in Lagos and handed him over to the command.

In a statement on Monday, the command spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi, announced Aiwansoba’s dismissal, adding that he had been charged with murder and arraigned before a magistrates’ court in Yaba.
