Three Policemen Dismissed For Assaulting Lagos Resident

The three policemen who allegedly assaulted a Lagos resident demuwagun Solomon, in the Ojota area of the state, have been dismissed.

Chike Oti, the state police spokesman, in a statement on Sunday, stated that the cops were given an orderly room trial where they were found guilty.

“The Lagos State Police Command wishes to inform members of the public that the Commissioner of Police, CP Edgal Imohimi, has dismissed three policemen, comprising an inspector and two sergeants, who were alleged to have sprayed tear gas on one Solomon Ademuwagun, which resulted in a severe asthmatic crisis. The incident took place at Chinese town, in the Ojota area of Lagos State.

“The men, whose names and service numbers are Inspector Momoh Sulaiman (220957), Sergeant Emmanuel Monday (429659) and Sergeant Adamu Usman (434246), were tried in an orderly room which commenced on Saturday, and were found guilty as charged. They were, therefore, dismissed and de-kitted accordingly.

“However, the dismissal proceeding of Inspector Momoh Sulaiman has been forwarded to the Assistant Inspector-General of Police, Zone 2, for approval.”
