Lagos - Beatrice Oyesolu, the 75-year-old mother of two of the three people killed by a drunk policeman in Ikosi-Ketu area of Lagos, is lamenting her nightmare, Punch reports.
The twin brothers Taiye, a naval officer and Kehinde, an engineer were both shot dead alongside their friend Jeje on Boxing Day at Paulson Hotel on Anibaba Street, Ketu-Ikosi, Lagos.
The septuagenarian said she has been left devastated as her sons had promised to start building her a house from January 2016, and now her hope has been dashed.

The drunk policeman, Stephen James, with Force number 217884, who also shot himself dead after committing the crime, was reported to have been posted to the hotel to ensure security of lives and property.
“I have been stripped naked because they are my clothes. Who will I turn to now?
“They promised me a lot of things next year. They wanted to start building a house on my parcel of land next month. This is the seventh month after the death of their father,” Madam Beatrice said in sorrow.
There are demands that the government should compensate the bereaved septuagenarian.For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page.
