Disu tweeted:

15 years ago when I was the DPO Ago Iwoye, I led a team to Ijebu Igbo to arrest a cultist at night. We gained access into his house, behold! He was waiting for us with a rifle. I was in front with a Sergeant. The cultist shot at us and hit the Sergeant beside me on the left arm and escaped.

“The room became dark with the smoke from the gun, and I could hear the sound of blood hitting the floor like water. The Sergeant said, ‘Oga They have shot me, Oga I am dying’.

“He was rushed to the hospital, I didn’t go with them, because I was sad, depressed and felt I failed to protect him, more so we were together in front and nothing touched me.”

He added:

“The Sergeant regained full use of his arm after a year and the suspect was arrested at Modakeke. The incident traumatized me for years.”
