A 43-year-old Divisional Police Officer of the Iponri Police Division in the Lagos State Police Command, CSP Segun Fagbohun, is dead.

Fagbohun, who hailed from Odo-Aye, Ondo State, and had been battling ulcer for some months, reportedly vomited in his car on Tuesday and later died in the hospital.

It was reported that the DPO, on Tuesday around 8am, was driven by his brother to keep an appointment, when he complained about his health.

It was learnt that the brother, whose name had yet to be ascertained, advised that they stopped at a hospital for a checkup.

According to PUNCH report, as soon as the brother made the suggestion, the DPO started vomiting in the car.

The brother was said to have quickly rushed him to a hospital in the Ikeja area.

The doctors at the private hospital suggested to the brother that the DPO be referred to another hospital. However, Faghohun died before he could be moved.

A police source said that Fagbohun was transferred from the Igando Police Division to Iponri about a month ago, and that the DPO had also recently sustained a gunshot injury during a shootout with vandals in the Igando area.

According to him: “The DPO had been sick for some time. He was moved from Igando to Iponri division about a month ago. He had been in and out of hospital. He was discharged from a hospital just last week Thursday.

“He was on his way to keep an appointment on Tuesday when he suddenly started vomiting and later slumped inside a car being driven by his brother, an engineer. The DPO was thereafter rushed to a hospital.

“The hospital authorities referred him to another hospital because of his critical condition, but before they could move him out, he died. The doctors on duty confirmed him dead.

“Fagbohun’s health deteriorated after his time at the Igando division, where he battled with pipeline vandals. On one occasion, he was shot by the vandals.”

A DPO in Lagos reportedly said on Tuesday that each of them had pledged N30,000 to help the ailing officer with medical bills until his sudden death.

Fatai Owoseni, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, on Tuesday visited the late police officer’s wife and children around 10am.

The corpse of the DPO was said to have been deposited at the morgue of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, said an autopsy would be carried out on the corpse of the DPO, adding that the command did not suspect any foul play.

“The command received the news as a rude shock. It came early in the morning on Tuesday to the CP, and the command is mourning. The deceased was one of our gallant officers. He was one of those who held the Igando division against the invasion of the militants.

“His corpse has been deposited in a morgue. An autopsy is going to be conducted on the corpse. The command does not suspect any foul play, unless if the autopsy reveals otherwise”, she said.
