Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, has ordered the immediate removal of the Divisional Police (DPO) in charge of Okokomaiko, SP Emmanuel Edebagha, over the lack of supervision of his men.
This was disclosed in a statement issued on Saturday by the state PPRO, Benjamin Hundeyin.
He said Owohunwa also ordered immediate disciplinary action against Edebagha and all officers involved in the extortion of a businessman.
“CP Idowu Owohunwa has ordered the immediate removal of DPO Okokomaiko for his lack of supervision of his men.
CP Owohunwa has also ordered the commencement of disciplinary action against him and all his indicted officers (who are already in the state headquarters),” Hundeyin said.
Officers of the division were said to have falsely labelled a phone dealer as a fraudster and extorted N100,000 from him.
