The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Idowu Owohunwa, has removed the Okokomaiko Divisional Police Officer, SP Emmanuel Edebagha for failing to supervise his officers properly.
Members of the Okokomaiko division had been accused of forcefully extorting N101,000 from a phone dealer in Lagos, falsely labeling him a fraudster.
CP Owohunwa ordered the immediate removal of the DPO and initiated disciplinary action against him and all officers implicated in the incident.
The state police spokesman, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed this on his verified Twitter page.
He wrote, “CP Idowu Owohunwa has ordered the immediate removal of DPO Okokomaiko for his lack of supervision of his men. CP Owohunwa has also ordered commencement of disciplinary action against him and all his indicted officers (who are already in the state headquarters)”.
