The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, has arrested three policemen attached to Bariga Division in the state for allegedly chaining a man to a generator.
The arrest was effected by a Divisional Police Officer (DPO), who was on a routine inspection at the station.
Owoseni disclosed that the cops are currently facing orderly room trial at the command headquarters in Ikeja and would get appropriate sanctions.
Owoseni, who stressed that the police is committed to international best practices assured residents that the force would not tolerate unprofessional conducts by men of the force.
His words: “In view of the desire by the IGP to sanitize the force, the three policemen involved in the act are being tried and adequate disciplinary actions would be taken against them at the end of the trial. The Policemen had arrested a man for committing an offence along Bariga road. They took him to the station where he was handcuffed to a generator.
“The command frowns at any case of misconduct against any of its men. Policemen are advised to operate within the ambit of their guidelines. Anyone found wanting in the discharge of his duty would be made to face the wrath of the law.
“People who feel their rights have been trampled on should approach the various platforms for compliant and desist from self- help.”
