Three policemen have been arrested for allegedly chaining a suspect to a generator at the Bariga Police Station in Lagos.
The policemen were arrested on the 16th of July, after they were discovered by a Divisional Police Officer (DPO), who was on a routine inspection at the station.
They would face orderly room trial at the command headquarters in Ikeja according to the state police commissioner, Fatai Owoseni.
Owoseni, who frowned at unprofessional conducts by some policemen, assured the public that the directives of the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, on international best practices for policing, would be respected.
He said: “In view of the desire by the IGP to sanitize the force, the three policemen involved in the act are being tried and adequate disciplinary actions would be taken against them at the end of the trial. The Policemen had arrested a man for committing an offence along Bariga road. They took him to the station where he was handcuffed to a generator.
“The command frowns at any case of misconduct against any of its men. Policemen are advised to operate within the ambit of their guidelines. Anyone found wanting in the discharge of his duty would be made to face the wrath of the law.
“People who feel their rights have been trampled on should approach the various platforms for compliant and desist from self- help.”
