Lagos Police boss fires DPO for permitting club activities in his area
The Division Police Officer in Ajao Estate and his senior officers have been fired by the Lagos state commissioner of police for permitting night club activities to take place at Garbana Club on Sunday, March 7.
The police command in Lagos on Sunday had raided the area between the hours of 1.40am and 2.30am and arrested 41 clubgoers.
This was contained in a statement released today March 8 by the police public relations officer in the state, Ademuyiwa Adejobi.
According to the statement, the Commissioner made the pronouncement while addressing officers Area Commanders and DPOs at the POWA Hall, Oduduwa Ikeja, today Monday, March 8.
He instructed that the senior police officers be redeployed to a yet-to-be ascertained station.
Earlier, the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, had warned Area Commander and DPOs to enforce COVID19 protocols in their areas, and on no account should any of them allow gross violation of the protocols in the state, but yet, many violate these protocols with impunity.
He still reiterated and warned the DPOs against promoting the violation of COVID-19 protocols in their areas particularly clubbing and non-wearing of nose masks as charity begins at home, and that he will pay them surprise visits to catch them unawares.
