The Lagos State Police Command has condemned the inhumane act leveled against certain people arrested during the protest at the Lekki tollgate area of the state on Saturday.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, said in an explanation on Sunday that the office responsible for the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Panti, Yaba, DCP Adegoke Fayoade, had been requested to analyse a trending video indicating the arrested suspects being exposed to dehumanizing conditions.

He stated that the persons responsible for the act would be brought to book.

Adejobi said, “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.”
