The police officer that killed a truck driver along the Akure-Owo Expressroad, Ondo State has finally surrendered himself to the police authorities.

It is understood that the wanted cop who is known as Sergeant Idowu Omosuyi, showed up at the Ondo Police Command headquarters last Thursday, barely twenty-four hours after he was declared wanted by the police authorities.

Recall that the cop who is said to be attached to the Federal Highway Patrol, had on Monday shot a truck driver, Ado Saleh on the head at a security check point after the latter refused to pay him a bribe.

Saleh died on the spot.

This was confirmed by the Police Spokesman of the Ondo State Command, Femi Joseph.

According to him, the policeman turned up at the police headquarters and would face a disciplinary panel.

He said the Ondo State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Udie Adie, had already set up a panel to investigate and also prosecute the erring officer.

“The officer (Sergeant Omoniyi) would now have to face a panel of investigation that was set up by the Commissioner of Police on the case.

“We have repeatedly said that the case would not be swept under the carpet and just as we have assured members of the public that the Nigeria police shall continue to abide by the laws and protect the lives and properties of the people,” he said.
