The Lagos state Police Command, on Wednesday, dismissed ten police officers for various offences.

The command’s spokesperson, SP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, announced this in a statement issued on Wednesday made available to newsmen in the state.

He mentioned that the dismissal was in a bid to promote discipline and core values of policing in the state.

Adejobi added that the command tried 81 personnel for various criminal and disciplinary offences that were committed between October 2019 and October 2020.

According to him, the offences ranged from murder, discreditable conducts, excessive use of power, negligence and corrupt practices.

The command also reduced the ranks of 18 officers and issued warning letters to others.

“Others were awarded extra fatigue, while 16 of the men were discharged and acquitted for want of evidence.

“The personnel tried in the orderly room proceedings, conducted at various locations in Lagos state, included 45 inspectors,” the statement read.

Consequently, Adejobi also said some senior officers of the command were queried for various disciplinary offences with the queries being processed at the Force Headquarters, Abuja, for necessary action.

“Some of the affected officers were attached to the Police Command, while others were serving at various police formations within Lagos State.

“The trials were instituted based on a series of complaints levelled against them.

He urged the general public to report any misconduct of police personnel to appropriate authorities, as such complaints will be treated accordingly and justice will be served.
