The Lagos State Police Command said it has detained the cop who allegedly shot his ex-lover, Joy Eze, at Opebi, Ikeja.

The suspect, Sergeant Eze Aiwansone, attached to the Special Protection Unit (SPU) Base 16, Ikeja, was alleged to have shot the victim on October 8 after inviting her on a date.

Aiwansone who ran after the alleged crime, was arrested by his elder brother, an Inspector of Police and handed over to the command, spokesman Olumuyiwa Adejobi said in a statement Thursday evening.

“The State CID Panti has taken over the case on the instruction of the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, for further investigation.
