Eze Aiwansone, the police officer who shot his girlfriend, Joy Eze in her mouth at Salvation Bus Stop in Ikeja, Lagos State, has been arrested.
Joy was rushed to the hospital on 8 October 2020, after she was shot by her police boyfriend with batch number: 458468.
According to her brother James, the couple have been together for almost two years and was planning to get married in December 2020. However, things went south after Joy broke up with Eze last week following alleged domestic abuse.
Eze Aiwansone would eventually shoot her over the dispute, and the PPRO Lagos state command, SP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, has now confirmed his arrest in a recent statement.
