In a statement made available by Police Public Relations Officer, Adekunle Ajisebutu stated that, Peeved by the unprofessional conduct of the officers as captured/revealed in the video, the Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu, directed that the erring police officers should be identified and arrested immediately.
In compliance with the directive, therefore, all the four police officers have been arrested and detained. They are currently facing disciplinary actions.
While condemning this inglorious act, the Commissioner of Police vows to deal decisively with any police officer found acting in such or other unprofessional manner in the Command.
