Following the illegal detention of Tunde Abass and one Kabir Abass by the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) Onipanu, CSP Francis Ani, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police (CP) Hakeem Odumosu has directed the immediate redeployment of the Onipanu DPO over the incident.
DPO Ani ordered the detention of Tunde Abass and one Kabir Mohammed on Friday, March 19.
According to the story, Abass incurred the wrath of the DPO for recording and intervening in the illegal arrest of Mohammed by men of the division around 5 pm that day.
However, as information of their unlawful detention went viral, Odumosu, in a statement by spokesman, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, directed an investigation into the case which found that the cops were unprofessional in the discharge of their duties.
Odumosu, while frowning at the gross violation of Abass’ human rights by the DPO and his men, he said the command under his watch will never condone such unprofessionalism and abuse of power.
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.”
