The three cops who were attached to Ishashi Police Division of Lagos State Police Command, were said to be on patrol on December 12 at 11.30p.m., when they received a call from an unknown guest, named Kezzy, who invited them for supper at Regional Hotel, also in Ishashi, claiming he wanted to reward them for a job they did for him.

The unknown guest was said to have fed them with food laced with drugs, after which they slept off and their weapons, three AK-47 rifles and 90 live ammunition were stolen.
