Lagos CP ALABI Re-Echoes Ban On Police In Mufti

Lagos CP ALABI Re-Echoes Ban On Police In Mufti

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi, has strongly and unequivocally warned all Area Commanders, Tactical Commanders and Divisional Police Officers (DPOs) in Lagos State to strictly ensure that their men do not carry out Police duties in mufti.

This warning is in compliance with the earlier directive of the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Alkali Baba Usman, that officers on patrol and stop-and-search duties must appear in approved uniforms.

CP Alabi has consequently vowed to vicariously hold liable any supervisor or Head of Department under whose jurisdiction this directive is flouted.

The general public is hereby enjoined to report sightings of any officer found on duty in mufti to enable the Command take appropriate disciplinary actions.
