Two persons have been sent to their early grave during a birthday party in Lagos when a drunk Police officer's gun salute went wrong on Sunday April 24, 2022.

This occurred when the buoyant policeman tried to offer a gun salute to celebrate a businessman present at the event but misfired, killing two persons while two others sustained injury.

The police command in Lagos State has reacted to the sad development and has declared a manhunt for the killer cop.

Daily Trust reports that the incident brought to an end the birthday party as those in attendance fled for fear of arrest.

It was learned that the intoxicated policeman took to his heels upon realising the enormity of his actions.

The spokesman of the state police, Benjamin Hundeyin, said the command was on the trail for the absconded police officer.

It was also gathered that the policeman was invited to provide security by the celebrant identified as Ifeanyi alias Asiwaju of Computer Village.
