The police have recovered the body of an informant named Wale Kalejaiye.
Kalejaiye went missing during an attack on police officers in the Akodo area of Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos State.
Kalejaiye’s corpse was recovered around 11pm on Friday from a beach in Magbon Segun community, Ibeju-Lekki area of the state.
The deceased had led police officers to the community to arrest some people, before hoodlums attacked them last Monday.
The police officers had arrested three suspects and were on their way out of the community when Kalejaiye identified another one.
The police officers stopped to arrest the new suspect when the hoodlums attacked the team and took Kalejaiye away.
A relative of the deceased identified simply as Alimi said his body had been deposited in a morgue for autopsy.
“It is a very bad thing that the hoodlums had to kill my brother for nothing,” Alimi told Punch.
“We got a call from the police at the Akodo Division on Saturday morning that they had recovered my brother’s corpse.
“The hoodlums dumped his body in the ocean at the Segun Beach area in Ibeju Lekki.”
Alimi said four people had been arrested in connection with the incident.
He identified the suspects as Bariu Oluwo, Ayoku Ogunlaja, Tajudeen Agbaje and Segun Hassan.
