The Lagos State Governor Has Sought An Immediate Redeployment Of Several Of The Taskforce Officers Unit For Arresting Innocent Citizens


Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State has
requested redeployment of some police officers
attached to the state's Task Force on
Environmental and Special Offences Unit for
arresting innocent citizens.
The Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Steve
Ayorinde, said in a statement in Lagos on Tuesday that the
governor had sent the request to the state commissioner of
police.
Ayorinde said Gov. Ambode asked for the redeployment
following raids carried out in different parts of the state by
officers of the taskforce on Friday.
"The governor has sought an immediate redeployment of
several of the taskforce officers from the unit, and possibly
from the state, over what the he calls unacceptable conduct.
"The request became necessary in order to checkmate the
reoccurrence of the unauthorised raid and indiscriminate arrest
of citizens who were out to have fun on Friday night," he said.
Ayorinde said preliminary investigation showed that the raid
was carried out with the knowledge of a high-ranking
member of the task force, but without the approval of its
chairman.
He noted that such conduct was not in tandem with the
vision of the State Government and was therefore
condemnable.
"Their conduct is also unbecoming of officers who are expected
to protect the citizenry and ensure that citizens and visitors find
every part of the state safe and conducive enough, not only on
Friday nights, but every day," he said.
Ayorinde, who apologised on behalf of the government, said
the state would not condone acts of high-handedness,
extortion and disregard for human rights.
