For Unlawfully Detaining Residents, Lagos CP Redeploys DPO

The Divisional Police Officer (DPO) for Onipanu, Lagos, Francis Ani, has been ordered redeployed by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu for unlawfully harassing and detaining two residents.

Ani was alleged to have ordered the detention of Tunde Abass and one Kabir Mohammed on Friday, March 19 for recording and intervening in the illegal arrest of Mohammed by men of the division around 5 pm that day.

Odumosu, according to a statement by the spokesman of the Lagos State Police Command, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, ordered an investigation after news of their detention went viral, which found that the cops were unprofessional in the discharge of their duties.

Adejobi said: “The police boss took the decision on Wednesday, March 24, after he perused the report of the investigation into the incident that had gone viral on the gross violation of Tunde’s human rights by the DPO and his boys.”
