Photo: Gov Fashola rewards female police officer who disarmed two robbers that tried to steal from her

Female police officer Sergeant Mercy John (pictured above), single-handedly disarmed two robbers who attempted to dispose her of her belongings at Egbeda-Shasha by Tawakalitu Close, Orisunmibare Road, Lagos on 10th February, 2015.

Sergeant Mercy, a native of Ikori in Cross River State was on her way to work when the armed robbers attacked her. She fought back and was able to recover a locally made pistol with two live cartridges from them.

Lagos state Governor Babatunde Fashola has now rewarded her for her bravery at a ceremony which held at the Lagos House, Ikeja on Tuesday.

Governor Fashola encouraged the brave female officer not to relent in her efforts in keeping the state safe...

"Let me say very clearly that I value the work that you do, people of Lagos value what you do and where ever you come from, this is your home and I think it is right to say that it was because you take this as home, you did the right thing, you took two robbers out of commission so that the people of Lagos can sleep well'' he said
