Lagos police commissioner, Edgal Imohimi, orders arrest of policemen for indiscriminate shooting at Ikeja Airport Toll gate
The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Edgal Imohimi, has ordered the arrest of four policemen alleged to have fired some shots at the airport tollgate, hitting one Tunde Adeparusi(pictured above), leaving him injured.
The incident happened at the tollgate end of the airport last Friday July 20th.
On receipt of the report, the CP immediately ordered the Command X-Squad section to fish out the policemen involved. Diligent investigation , led to the arrest of the policemen:
1. Inspector Christian Offor
2. Inspector Kingsley Umeji
3. Sergeant David Eguavoen
4. Sergeant Paul Ebo
The above named policemen are under investigation at X-Squad section and if the allegation against them is established, they will be marched before the Command’s Provost for their orderly room trials.
The Command wishes to assure members of the public that in line with its tradition of accountability, the outcome of the trial will be made public as usual.
The CP reiterates that belligerent policemen and their likes who have refused to key into the professional ethos of the Force have no room in this era of democratic policing. He therefore enjoins police officers in Lagos to be professional in the discharge of their duties.
