JUST IN: Lagos Police Boss Sacks All Men Of Special Anti-Cultism Squad
Desperate situations require desperate measures.
The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Edgal Imohimi, left all men of the Anti-Cultism Squad in shock on Monday after he got tired of their unprofessional conducts and corruption in the unit.
All members of the squad have been relieved of their duty posts and have been directed to report to the Lagos State Police Headquarters for debriefing.
He also redeployed the Officer-in-Charge of the Squad, SP Godwin Agbegbe while CSP Akaninyene Etuk has been posted to take over from him.
He said that the unit is very crucial in the fight against cultists and cultism in the state and he was not willing to take chances with it.
The CP Lagos warns that the same treatment awaits any other unit in the command that is working at cross purposes with the fundamental objectives of the Nigeria Police Force.
He added that Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers and Head of Departments must increase supervision of their men in order to ensure non-violation of the police Standard Operating Procedure (SOP).
There would have been wild jubilation across Nigeria a similar action had been taken over the several cases of corruption and unprofessionalism proven against men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
This bring to the fore the question about the authority of State Commissioners of Police over SARS.
There are too many reasons for citizens to believe that these men who always parade themselves in mufti and with no regard for citizens’ rights are above the law.
Meanwhile, members of the public with useful information about the activities of cultists in any part of the state are encouraged to reach CSP Etuk on GSM number 08034448617.
