The Lagos State Command Has Released A Statement Stating That The Allegations Are Unfounded.  According To The PPRO, Chike Oti, After Carrying Out Investigations, They Found Out That Nothing Of Such Happened And The Incident Was Also Not Reported At Any Police Station. The Statement Reads; 

The Attention Of The Lagos State Police Command Has Been Drawn To The News Making The Rounds On The Social Media That SARS Operatives,  on Monday 9th Of April, 2018,  beat A Citizen Until He Was Dead. 
Based On The Video Clip Of The Incident Which Went Viral On The Social Media, The Command Began An Investigation Into Matter. 
Part Of Its Findings Was That No Such Incident Took Place At Haruna Bus Stop, Ogba On Monday 9th April,2018; There Was No Record Of It Being Reported At Any Of The Police Formations Within Ogba Area Command Nor Was It Reported At Any Of The Command's Complaint Platforms. 

Besides The Above, It Is A Common Knowledge That Such An Incident Cannot Happen In  the City Of Lagos Without An Uproar At The Venue  of Incident; It Is In This Regards That Plain Clothes Detectives Were Deployed To  enquire From The People Living And Doing Business Around The Popular Haruna Bus Stop Whether Such Incident Ever Happened In Their  area  and Not A Few Were Embarrassed By Such Question Because According To Them It Never Happened.
The Command Therefore Wishes To Advise The Public To Take Unverified News Emanating From Social Media Platforms With A Pinch Of Salt. Media Houses Of All Categories  are Also  advised To Seek  confirmation Of Information Available To Them  from The Police Before Pushing It Out To The Public.
