[rw_inline id=”18279″]

The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, Hakeem Odumosu, has ordered the Police Public Relations Officer of the command to roll out the phone numbers of the Public Complaint Bureau of the command to the general public. This will be in addition to the already released phone numbers to allow members of the public to lodge complaints against police harassment, brutality and extortion.
The police chief, while restating his zero tolerance for unethical and inhuman conducts in the police, ordered all checkmating units in the command including provost, X-Squad, CP Monitoring Team and Public Complaint Bureau (PCB), to wake up to their duties and arrest any policeman who deviates from the normal ethics and Standard Operating Procedure (SOP)of the Nigeria Police within Lagos State.
The Commissioner of Police, also, urges members of the public to always take the pains of identifying such policemen who harass, brutalise and extort them as Lagos State hosts many police formations aside from the Lagos State Command. Such identification will facilitate investigation and disciplinary actions against erring personnel.
In a release signed by Olumuyiwa Adejobi, Police Public Relations Officer, states that Odumosu appeals to the general public to contact the command (Public Complaint Bureau) on the following numbers: 09057597931 (whatsApp), 09010512350(OC PCB), 09010512348, 09090003792.
This is coming at a time the Inspector General of Police has banned patrols by police squads following reported harassment of civilians by police personnel. The IG also said he would hold police chiefs responsible for infractions in their commands.
