• CP warns officers against extortion
The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu has on Thursday ordered the immediate ‘orderly room trial’ of Inspector Joseph Dike who was caught in a viral picture extorting a motorcyclist in Pako Pin-Down Point, Aguda area of the state.
Dike, who was attached to the Aguda Police Division, was only posted on a stop-and-search duty on Tuesday September 22 this year when he got involved in the act.
According the State Police Spokesman, SP Muyiwa Odejobi, the CP had sent a stern warning to all police personnel in the command to desist from corrupt practices, extortion, misuse of power, improper dressing, and harassment of members of the public by using sticks or horsewhip.
Odumosu further cautioned officers against violation of human rights and drunkenness on duty, as such will attract severe reprimand or punishment according to the provisions of the Police Act and Regulations and other extant laws of Nigeria.
The CP further admonished senior police officers of the command to caution their men and ensure that his directives with a view to stopping these unprofessional and unethical conducts are strictly complied with.Follow us on social media
