It was gathered that after the policeman perpetrated the crime, he fled from the crime scene and abandoned the victim.
Footage of the incident, which had been trending online showed the lady grappling in pain as some good Samaritans rushed her to the hospital for treatment.
In the footage, the lady’s chick had torn due to the impact of the bullet that pierced her mouth.
The lady was also seen sitting on the floor of a hospital wallowing in pain while waiting for a doctor to attend to her.
Initial online reports were that she is an #EndSARS protester who got shot at by a policeman after a protest got violent.
However, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, who confirmed the incident, said the security operative involved is the lady’s lover, ThePunch reports.
The policeman has been identified, not in Lagos command, but works in Lagos State.
He is the lady’s boyfriend; we will get him. We guess they have a conflict that triggered the shooting. Policemen have been sent to the hospital to visit the lady and get some facts when she is stable.
