Lagos Dismiss Two Officers For Extortion by nemadfsyahooc: 5:26pm On Jun 09, 2018
LAGOS CBD DISMISS TWO OFFICERS FOR EXTORTION
The Lagos State Government through the Office of the Special Adviser on Central Business Districts has dismissed two CBD enforcement officers over cases of extortion and illegal arrest.
Making the disclosure over the weekend, the Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor on Central Business Districts, Prince Olarenwaju Elegushi said the dismissal of the two officers was part of disciplinary measures by the agency to instill discipline, re-orientate and awaken a renewed mindset of staff, monitoring officers as well as volunteer corps towards a better service delivery.
The Special Adviser while reiterating the state government resolve to weed out bad eggs among staff of the agency disclosed that the two officers, Mr Babatunde Scale and Abioye Bakare were caught extorting money from a traffic offender illegally. He maintained that his agency will not tolerate any illegality by its officers and will continually discipline any officers found wanting in the discharge of their duties.
“To instill discipline among our staff, the Agency has dismissed a number of enforcement officers, volunteer corps as well as sanitation corps whose actions undermined the objectives of the Agency and compromised the public image of government. Before now, four monitoring officers and some volunteers were dismissed for dereliction of duty. Today, two officers who were trying to extort money from a traffic offender illegally where caught and summarily dismissed”.
While advising motorists, business operators as well as visitors to adhere to traffic, sanitation and security rules when within the business districts, the Special Adviser urged members of the public with complains on CBD enforcement operations as well as activities bothering on extortion, molestation or assault by CBD operatives to report such complains to his office. He assured that such complains will be attended to with dispatch.

Dismissing a police officer is another form of increasing crime on the public as those officers dismissed would now form a deadly group of armed robbers. They know how to get uniform and guns to rob. In fact, they are supposed to be sent to war front or have their faces published on national dailies so that people can recognize them. Most of these dismissed officers are the ones giving the police the bad image as they can use their uniform for crime.
