Police Brutality: Stop Attacking LASTMA Officials, CACOL warms

The Centre for Anti-Corruption and Open Leadership, CACOL, has condemned in its entirety, the cruelty meted to Officials of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), by officers of other law enforcement agencies.

In a press release issued by the Media Officer of CACOL, Mr. Ikenna Aghagbobi, on behalf the Executive Chairman of the Centre, Mr. Debo Adeniran, he stated that: “The harassment and intimidation of LASTMA personnel who are daily whisked away or killed for purportedly doing their civic duties by serving and retired officers of other Security outfits of the nation is quite unfortunate and needs to be condemned by all reasonable Nigerians. This is coming at a time when the Traffic Law enforcement agency had to undergo certain reorientation and reorganization to enable them perform their statutory duties of sanitizing our roads with decorum and civility; we are therefore at a loss as to what could warrant such profiling which has become too rampant in recent times.” 

The CACOL boss recalled a recent incident where a LASTMA official named Adeyemo Rotimi was brutally murdered in cold blood by a power drunk policeman attached to Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad unit (FSARS).  Adeyemo who has just been laid to rest about four days ago is one of the officials of the LASTMA whose life has been cut short by officers of other forces whom they are meant to be working hand in hand with.

According to Adeniran: “The latest in this endless list of abuse to the LASTMA is the forceful abduction of Afeez Oladipupo, a LASTMA personnel attached to BRT Monitoring. Afeez was abducted by a gang of Military personnel in mufti and was taken to Madas Barracks on the 18th of December 2018, where he was tortured and suffered several body injuries.

“Though we are aware of the disciplinary measures the military has applied whenever it received notice about any erring officers, we are certain that the need to weed out bad eggs, especially those who are not in uniform and cannot be identified immediately from the Army- which has become urgent -cannot be given a carefree approach. 

The CACOL Boss also pointed out, “Incidentally, the Nigerian society needs to re-orientate or refocus its approach to matters of this nature as vandalizing the properties of the abductors in retaliation as it was reported could be likened to a armed robbery and reeks of lawlessness.

The CACOL boss went further: “It is equally important to constantly and periodically re-orientate and re-educate officers of all the law enforcement forces to acquaint them with modern and suitable approaches in dealing with not only the civil society, but also other agencies set up to enforce law and order. We call on the Military to look into the circumstances surrounding the abduction and terms of release of Mr. Afeez Oladipupo and ensure that measures are put in place to right all wrongs that might have been made in the course of arriving at current situation.” The statement said.
