Policeman Dies During Promotional Examination

Tragedy played again yesterday at the police college, Ikeja, Lagos, venue of the ongoing promotional examination of policemen to the rank of sergeant and inspector after a sergeant attached to the Oyo State police command collapsed and died. Lekan, as the sergeant was identified, reportedly wrote the promotional examination with his other colleagues between Wednesday and Friday last week. Information gathered reveals that officers who passed the examination were expected to undergo an assessment exercise with a team of Senior Police Officers headed by an Assistant Inspector General of Police. Ahead of the examination, the policemen as reported, assembled in groups of 50 on the parade ground, awaiting their turn. But the situation took a tragic dimension when Sergeant Lekan, who was to be promoted to the rank of Inspector, reportedly collapsed at about 1pm. Members of his group were said to have tried all they could to revive him, to no avail. A doctor who was said to have arrived the parade ground informed the shocked policemen that Lekan had passed on. An ambulance from the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, LASUTH, later arrived the scene and removed the corpse to the mortuary . Though the situation dislodged the policemen but it did not stop the assessment exercise . Police sources at the college affirmed that the deceased came to the college sick and could not have stood so long with the illness. A policeman who claimed to be from the same command with Lekan, said that Lekan had an auto accident and had been very sick since then and managed to come for the assessment because he passed the examination that was written the previous week.
