Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, Hakeem Odumosu,ordered for the immediate detention and

orderly room trial of  Inspector Adadu Innocent.


“Odumosu personally moved the injured journalist to the Police Cottage (Hospital) at Area F, GRA, Ikeja,

where he personally waited and ensured that the injured journalist was given immediate and good medical treatment.


“An eyewitness account from senior officers on ground, revealed that the policeman suddenly attacked the journalist,

without any previous altercation or confrontation.


“This propelled the commissioner to order for his trial in order to serve as a deterrent to others who are fond of engaging in

unprofessional and unethical conducts,” he said.

and reform the policing system in Lagos State in conformity with international standards.
