The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Adegoke Fayoade, has invited a lawyer, Timothy Olamide Olaniyi, who took to his XSpace handle to allege that he was assaulted by a police officer.

According to the State Police Spokesman, Benjamin Hundeyin, the CP extended the invitation upon receipt of the tweet by Olaniyi.

Hundeyin said: “Investigations so far reveal that the lawyer had the encounter at about 09:30 am with some police officers who came from outside Lagos State to take over suspects arrested for them by the Lagos State Command.

“These visiting police officers have been summoned for an identification parade to enable the lawyer to identify the police officer in question.

“Meanwhile, the Lagos State Police Command has been in constant touch with the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) leadership, especially Chukwuka Ikwuazom SAN who leads the Security Agencies Relations Committee (SARC) of the Association.

“The NBA has been assured that the Command would leave no stone unturned to identify the officer behind the unprofessional act and mete out appropriate sanctions as the alleged misconduct is condemned and against the ethics of the Nigeria Police Force.

“The Command uses this medium once again to encourage Lagosians to reach out to the Complaint Response Unit (lagos.npf.gov.ng) or any senior officer, in person or via the already publicised phone numbers, when they have complaints against police action.”
