CSP Salami Mojeed, Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Seme Police Division, Lagos State, has slumped and died in his office.

TNN gathered that the incident happened on Tuesday.

According to reports, the deceased complained of headache and visited the hospital on the same day. But was still feeling unwell.

The DPO is said to have instructed his orderly to inform the Divisional Crime Officer (DCO) to come to his office, as he wanted to leave but not without handing over official proceedings to the DCO.

The orderly, however, returned to meet him on the floor, gasping for breath. He was later confirmed dead by Badagry General Hospital where he was rushed to.

The Public Relations Officer of Lagos State Police Command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the DPO’s death on Friday.

In a tweet, he wrote: “We regret to announce the death (while in service) of SP Salami Mojeed, DPO of Seme Division, which occurred on Tuesday, 10 of January 2023, following a brief illness. He has since been buried in his home town of Ede, Osun State. May Allah grant him aljannah firdaus. Amin.”
