Imagine our dear Nigeria rated “the safest and best policed country”. It’s doable with the right reforms, effective implementations and public-private partnership (community policing). We actually can “Claim the 21st Century”.

Never agree to give any policeman any money on the streets of Lagos. #seesomethingsaysomething
Here to play my part in building our beloved city, Lagos and our great country Nigeria.
In keeping with the promise the Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi made to the good people of Lagos state on assumption of office, that there will be no room for any indisciplined, corrupt Lagos police officer under his watch; the Lagos State Police Command released to the general public earlier this year the breakdown in figures, of corrupt Lagos police officers who were punished for various disciplinary offences between the months of September and December 2017.
- Nine(9) officers were dismissed for offences ranging from discreditable conduct, corrupt practice, disobedience to lawful order and falsehood.
- Twenty five(25) were reduced in rank for offences ranging from gross insubordination, drunkenness, incivility to members of the public and leaving beat.
- A total of sixty (60) Inspectors and rank and files were awarded the punishments of Major and minor entries.
The Commissioner of Police said the punishments handed down to the unruly officers would serve as deterrent to others who may wish to toe the path of ignominy. He stated further that officers who play by the rules had nothing to fear and would be encouraged.
Meanwhile, Iheanachor Omuta is a happily married man. Here are loved up pictures he shared on his social media pages to celebrate his wife and their 1 year old marriage.
