Lagos Police Boss Condemns Molestation of Arrested Protesters

…. orders investigation into the matter

The Lagos state commissioner of police, Hakeem Odumosu has condemned the molestation and violation of rights of some arrested protesters by police officers on Saturday at the Lekki Toll Gate.

The protesters were arrested in connection with Endsars protest at the lekki Tollgate and have been charged to court while the court had since granted them bail.

In a statement made available to newsmen on Sunday by the Lagos state police public relations officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, the police commissioner frowned at the unprofessional conduct of the police officers and has ordered a thorough probe into the matter.

Adejobi said, “the attention of the Lagos State Police Command has been drawn to a viral video where some arrested “Endsars protesters” were being molested in a bus by some individuals after their arrest.
The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, who was piqued by this unprofessional and inhuman act, has ordered the Deputy Commissioner of Police, State CID, Panti, DCP Adegoke Fayoade, to analyse the video and bring to book whoever that must have been responsible for the act.

CP Hakeem Odumosu reiterates that, in as much as the command is resolute in enforcing all laws in the state, it will not deviate from the Standard Operating Procedure of the Nigeria Police Force and provisions of the law in discharging its duties; noting that the command will fish out those responsible for the molestation and ensure they are punished for their unprofessional conduct.

He further urged Lagosians to be law-abiding and maintain peace at all times as the police and other security agencies will not allow any violence and break down of law and order in any part of the state.
