Lagos Police Officer Detained For Unprofessional Conduct


The Lagos State Police Command has announced the arrest and detainment of one of his operatives over his inability to be professional during an encounter with a citizen.

The State Command Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Benjamin Hundeyin confirmed the development in a statement made available to newsmen on Friday.

According to Hundeyin, the incident featured Aderele Aisha, who allegedly drove against traffic and assaulted the officer while becoming belligerent and unruly.

While the officer remained composed most of the time, he did allow his emotions to cloud his judgment on a few occasions.

He further stated that the cop had been brought into jail for proper disciplinary actions.

The statement reads, “As much as the police officer exercised restraint, he allowed his emotions get the better part of him once or twice.

“A police officer is expected to exercise utmost restraint in the face of provocation.

“This definitely is a teaching moment for officers and men of the Force. The officer has been taken in for appropriate actions.

“That being said, Aderele Aisha, who drove against traffic, clearly assaulted the officer and behaved in a disorderly and unruly manner.

“She has since profusely apologized for her actions and tendered a written apology.

“While we continue to train our men to be as professional as possible, while not sparing any officer who clearly acts unprofessionally, we urge the citizenry to strive to maintain decorum in their dealings with security agencies”.
