The management of Zone 2 Police Command Headquarters in Onikan, Lagos, has categorically denied allegations circulating on social media regarding the unlawful arraignment of suspects by its officers.

In a statement issued today, the Zonal Police Public Relations Officer, SP Ayuba T. Umma, emphasized that all arraignments carried out by the command undergo rigorous examination. A Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP) representative scrutinizes each case file to ensure its suitability for criminal proceedings before any court arraignment.

The Assistant Inspector General of Police, AIG Olatoye A. Durosinmi, urged the public to disregard the spread of false information that undermines trust in police operations. He reassured the community of the force’s dedication to executing its duties professionally and in strict adherence to legal standards.

This response comes as a crucial reminder of the procedures in place within the Nigeria Police Force to prevent any misuse of power and to maintain the integrity of legal processes in handling suspects and criminal cases.
