'Some area commanders & DPOs are on the payroll of fraudsters' -Lagos police commissioner, Fatai Owoseni says

Commissioner for Police in Lagos state, Fatai Owoseni, says he has information that some police area commanders and Divisional Police Officers DPOs are on the payroll of fraudsters and criminals operating in the state. Owoseni disclosed this while speaking at a lecture on code of conduct for law enforcement officers on Tuesday May 23rd. According to the police chief, it is a curse to collect such money and use it to build a house. He vowed to expose such police officers.

“It is your responsibility as a DPO to know those who are collecting bribe under you. If you refuse to stop them, they will stop you from being a DPO. It is embarrassing to see policemen collecting bribes and chasing yahoo yahoo boys for a DPO. I would not cover any DPO, I will expose you. Just leave Lagos before I get to your station. I cannot share out of your misconduct. 
I will give your photographs and details to journalists to expose you. I am shocked to hear that some area commanders and DPOs are on the payroll of fraudsters. I am investigating; just pray that I don’t get you. Just know that you are causing pains for taxpayers if you are intimidating them and collecting bribe from criminals. It is a curse to build a house with such money; the building would collapse on your head. Some of you even take people to the bank to collect money. If you train your children with the money, they won’t be useful to you. If those who were in the force before us bastardised it, we would not have the opportunity to be enlisted in the police. I am tired of hearing about shooting or killing of innocent persons. No one has the right to take another man’s life. 
It is only God that has the right to take life. I am tired of pleading with police victims because you are doing what you are not supposed to do. Go back to your areas of jurisdiction and warn your men against brutality, indiscriminate use of handcuffs on pregnant women, elders and persons with disability. Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) should take note. I will not tolerate any act of indiscipline. Learn a lesson from DPO Ijeshatedo, who shot dead a fashion designer. He is in our custody and we are compiling charges against him. He would soon be arraigned in court. All DPOs in Ikorodu should use all resources within their disposals to fish out Badoo cult group that has been causing havoc in the community. I am giving you all 48 hours to decongest your cells. Nobody should be detained more than 48 hours. I will conduct checks on the cells.” he said.

Very good to hear. Glad you are aware of what your boys are doing.

Good advice and directive from CP Owoseni,hope DPOs and Area Commanders will obey.It is high time police got rid of police brutality ,rascality,excessiveness,high-handedness and above all corruption.
This will go a long way in bringing back trust in police.Nigeria police has lost credence.

Such a bloody pretender and liar!!! Oga u were transfered out of a Lagos few months back to be replaced with another Police Commissioner, but U went on and about, crying to the Oba of Lagos and other disgustingly corrupt politicians, U even went as far as tasking these same DPOs u're cursing to raise the millions of naira U used to bribe ur way so U might be brought back as the commissioner of Lagos. May all ur curses remain with U and ur entire generation in ten thousand folds, U receive bribe in the name of 'returns' from these same DPOs, threatening them with transfers if they don't pay U 'homage'. Only one who is close to these Police officers would know. U probably think U've succeeded in deceiving the public with these stupid and lame speech of yours...buh guess what? God is watching and will pay U in your own coin. CURSED BASTARD!!!

May Allah accord you His protection to be able to do it because those officers you mentioned are the people that will arrange with their fellow criminal to cross you as it was done to one DPO brought to lafenwa in abeokuta that was killed years back.
