According to the CP Lagos State, Mr. Imohimi Edgal, 58 other officers recorded major entries, six officers reprimanded, 28 officers got warning motors, four officers had extra fatigue, while five others were discharged for lack of evidences against them.
The days of police officers receiving slaps on the wrist for offences are gone. When you performed excellently well, you will receive a CP’s Commendation Letter.

I am not happy punishing any officer, but that does not mean we should overlook unprofessional conducts. When I resumed as CP Lagos State, I discovered that the public had lost confidence in the police.
I set up a Citizen Complaint Hot Centre with 10 mobile phone lines through which people can complain about the wrongs of our men. I have received many complaints.

However, there is no way I would know all that my men are doing if nobody complained, he said.
Mr. Imohimi Edgal called on people in Lagos to continue to assist the police with information and other assistance, stressing that the 28,000 officers and men in Lagos were inadequate to police the state.
