Lagos police commissioner forced to trek 10 kilometers

Nigerian youths protesting against police brutaliy on Sunday, October 18, 2020 forced the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu to trek 10 kilometers as he paid a visit to a grandma, Mrs Durojaiye Olaleye brutally assaulted on Monday, October 12, 2020 by a police officer as captured in a viral video on the social media. 

The police commissioner alongside other senior officers obliged.

The Commissioner of Police, who had earlier been denied access at the Muritala Mohammed Airport tollgate in Ikeja by End SARS protesters, ran into a similar barricade at NNPC junction, Okota, where the protesters insisted that CP Hakeem Odumosu and team alight from their official cars and trek that long distance despite series of explanations and appeals on the Command’s mission in the area.

A statement signed by Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said, “The Commissioner of Police, like every other officer in Lagos State, who has been professional in tolerating and managing several harassments, intimidations and provocations from the protesters, obliged and trekked for peace to reign.”

The statement adds that the visit to the assualted grandma, who is the mother of Oxlade’s manager, Ojah Bee, was to “sympathise and apologise to her and her family members and assure them that the arrested police officer, SP Tunji  Ajakaiye, second-in-command at the disbanded Anti Kidnapping Unit, Surulere, who assaulted the grandma has been queried and will face the Force Disciplinary Committee (FDC) for appropriate punishment.”

The police chief also condemned the unprofessional conduct of the senior officer which is unbecoming of his status and contrary to the IGP’s modern policing principles. 

While assuring Lagosians of his commitment to sanitise the command, CP Hakeem Odumosu encouraged members of the public to report all unprofessional conducts of police officers and men to the command for appropriate disciplinary actions.
