Drama as madman stabs 2 policemen in Lagos

Two policemen were stabbed yesterday in Alakija area of Lagos metropolis as they tried to drive an insane woman away from the premises of a popular pentecostal church.

According to an eyewit­ness, who did not want to be named, “trouble started when the woman was stand­ing in front of the church and policemen deployed to the area attempted to evict her.

“Suddenly, a madman, who was watching what was going on, went to meet the policemen ostensibly to stop them.

“The policemen left the woman and confronted the insane man. They started beating him with their ba­tons. The madman, who was with a stick started flogging the policemen.

“Suddenly, the madman brought out a broken bottle from his bag and stabbed the two policemen, who were later rushed to Navy Town Hospital by church mem­bers and onlookers.

“News got to other police­men attached to the church that their colleagues had been stabbed by the mad­man and they reinforced and began to look for the mad­man, whom they found at Alakija Bus-stop.

“The five policemen sur­rounded the madman and tried to overpower him and after much struggle, they tied him up with a rope and bundled him into their van and took him back to the church for interrogation.”

He said the policemen later saw a man taking pic­tures and tried to collect his phone from him but he iden­tified himself as a soldier and they let him go.
