Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) Zone Two, Ari Mohammed Ali, issued a stern warning to officers and personnel serving in Lagos and Ogun States against engaging in extrajudicial killing, acts of brigandage, and extortions under his watchful eye.
He made it clear that such misconduct would not be tolerated during his tenure.
Also, he made a firm commitment to thoroughly investigate any alleged cases of appalling and unprofessional behavior exhibited by police patrol teams along the Mile Two-Badagry-Seme Border stretch.
Ali assured the public of his unwavering dedication to upholding professionalism within the police force.
The AIG conducted a meeting with the media at the zonal headquarters in Onikan the previous evening. During the discussion, he paid special attention to specific area commands, divisions, and departments identified as problematic.
He promised to ensure that the respective commands diligently investigated the allegations and held the culprits accountable for their actions.
Ali further pledged that he would spare no effort in combating cultism, kidnapping, and all other forms of criminality in Lagos and Ogun states, striving to bring them to their lowest possible levels.
He said “My job here is mainly supervisory but as an operational officer that all of you know, I would do more than supervision which I have since started, particularly patrolling at night and supervision of officers and men to ensure that Lagos and Ogun States are relatively calm. As you are all aware, once Lagos is calm, Nigeria as a whole can be said to be calm.”
He described Egbetokun’s appointment as IGP as a blessing to the Nigeria Police Force.
Ali noted the new IGP “is an amazing mathematical and quintessential officer with an unrivalled quest poised to reposition the Nigeria Police Force with his laudable mission and vision.
“The acting Inspector General of Police has started on a right footing by collaborating with the Chairman of the Police Service Commission (PSC) Solomon Arase with a view to accelerating promotion of deserving officers and men to put in their best in crime fighting and keeping the nation peaceful.”
