Tubaba and a friend were on their way from a club to Southern Sun Hotel, Ikoyi around 3am when they discovered the body of Corporal Ganiu somewhere along Muri Okunola, Victoria Island, Lagos.
According to the friend, Ohio, the Executive Producer of Industry Nite a weekly event held at the Oriental Hotel, they ignored the rumours that gun shots were heard on Muri Okunola and left the club for the hotel in Tuface Idibia’s car, with him behind the wheels.
When they saw the body lying on the street, they feared the many dangers that could come with stopping on the road at that time of the morning. 2face and Ohio also dreaded the fuss the media and police would make out of them discovering a body on the road side, but they pushed such thoughts aside and stepped out to help the man.
They were informed that the officer was shot in the hand, stomach and leg barely 5 minutes before their arrival and was separated from his other police partners. 2face and Ohio immediately helped the bleeding officer into the car and drove him to Reddington hospital, also in Victoria Island. The hospital was initially reluctant to accept the patient as it was a gunshot case, but eventually admitted him based on 2face’s reputation.
Ganiu was subsequently transferred to an unconfirmed hospital by the police and is now in stable condition. The DPO of Maroko police station, who confirmed the incident, expressed his appreciation to Tuface and Ohio for rescuing the officer.
