Lagos CP Orders Arrest Of 3 Officers Over Extortion
The new Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Imohimi Edgal seems to have hit the ground running.
He has ordered the arrest of three officers who were caught extorting motorists within Surulere Local Council area.
The spokesperson of the Command, Olarinde Famous-Cole, said the Police boss also ordered the Deputy Commissioner of Police to issue a query to the Divisional Police Officer in-charge of the affected area.
The CP said henceforth HOD’s, Area commanders and DPO’s who are directly in charge of their Departments or stations. They are also the only ones allowed to sign a detention order in the command.
He said under no circumstances should any other person sign detention order.
“It has become very vital for all officers and men in Lagos State Police Command to adhere strictly to these instructions and on no account will the fundamental rights of the citizens be trampled upon under my watch,” the statement quoted Imohimi as saying.
