Intimidating the innocent citizens of the country has being a top not-say in the country especially in the city of Lagos and other South East States, Now we’re officailly warning the police officers incase if anything like that happens again.
The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu, has warned officers and men of the Command against being used to intimidate or harass innocent citizens in the State or anywhere in Nigeria.
The CP gave the stern warning on Tuesday November 30 when he was addressing patrol and guard officers at the Lagos State Police Command Headquarters, Ikeja.
While admonishing officers to take their personal safety as a priority and be security conscious at all times, CP Odumosu also warned police officers attached to companies, organizations, agencies, or those serving as escorts to VIPs against performing illegal duties or traveling outside the State without official permission.
The police boss further warned officers and men to stop acts that demean them and are capable of dragging the name of the Nigeria Police Force into disrepute, which in return is making the youths of the country seeing every police officer as an intimidator instead of a friend. Like we always say “Police is your friend”.
