A statement by the Command’s spokesperson, Patricia Amadin, said the policeman reported by the media to be drunk has been identified and arrested and would face disciplinary measures.
According to Amadi, “The attention of the Lagos State Police Commissioner, CP Fatai Owoseni has been drawn to a pictorial publication on the website of Sahara Reporters of 07.08.15 and the PUNCH Newspapers of 08.08.15, depicting a Policeman in uniform alleged to have been drunk.
“This is to inform the general public that the said Policeman has since been identified and arrested by the Command and that the Commissioner of Police has ordered a full blown investigation into the case, in accordance with the Force disciplinary procedures
“In line with the stand of the current Force leadership on discipline, the Commissioner of Police has repeatedly warned Police officers of the Command to desist from engaging in acts of indiscipline and going contrary to the ethics and professional standards of the Force which are capable of dragging the name of the Force and the Command into disrepute.
“While thanking the public for its continued support in exposing erring officers, he enjoined them to continue to do so to help the Command to improve on its service delivery.”
