Lagos Police Deny Raising Money For Okada
You might have come across the gist that police are raising money for the recovery of a motorcycle.
A document entitled "LOST POLICE BAJAJ BOXER MOTORCYCLE RECOVERY LEVY" has been circulating on social media.
Ridiculous, isn’t it?
The Lagos State Police Command has dissociated itself from the document and this is the story told by the Police PRO.
The Bajaj Boxer motorcycle belonged to one Ugochukwu Ojimadu.
It was seized by policemen when Ojimadu was apprehended for plying the bike at odd hours of the night (11.30pm) in total disregard to Lagos government laws banning motorcycle on its roads from 10:00 p.m.
The Bajaj Boxer Motorcycle was later wrestled from the hands of policemen attached to Ajeromi Police station, Ajegunle by hoodlums.
Four male persons suspected to have stolen the unregistered Bajaj motorcycle from police were arrested.
Then, the fundraising document emerged, and the police insists “the document did not come from the police neither did the police solicit the people of Ajeromi community to contribute money.
“Mischief makers believed to be gang members of the four suspects currently undergoing investigation at Ajeromi Police station for stealing the unregistered Bajaj motorcycle are suspected to be the brains behind the circulation of the falsehood on the social media.”
Lagos Police PRO, SP Chike Oti, added that the four suspects in their custody are to appear in court on Monday, April 9, 2018.
