The Commissioner of Police for Lagos State, Hakeem Odumosun has condemned the unprofessional act of men of the Nigeria Police Force at the #OccupyLagos protest which held at Lekki tollgate yesterday.
A video went viral yesterday of protesters which also included popular comedian Macaroni being stripped half naked and tied up inside a rickety old commercial bus.
In a statement by the state Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, the Commissioner has ordered an investigation into the video and that the culprits be brought to book.
“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 state Commissioner of Police, 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, inasmuch 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 thier 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.”
