TWELVE POLICEMEN have been arrested in different places of Lagos by the state’s police command for one case of misconduct or the other. Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, who revealed this while speaking during a press briefing held at the Police Command headquarters, Ikeja, said the arrested officers would be investigated before any sanction. He said the Inspector General of police, Ibrahim Idris, has warned that all policemen should comport themselves in a civilised manner and project the image of the Nigeria Police Force. Owoseni also briefed the press on incidents in which oil wells were discovered in some homes in Lagos. Speaking on the directive to seal off and empty the oil wells found in a compound in Illasamaja, the Spokesmen discovered that officials of various security agencies and the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, were working round the clock to effect the directive. “On Wednesday morning, officials of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, LASEMA, National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, Police, Directorate of State Security, DSS, and some other sister agencies were at the scene to engage in the supervision and monitoring of the process of emptying the 12 oil wells discovered at Abeokuta Street, in Ilasamja. “We are at the point of emptying all the oil wells. It is for the NNPC experts to test the quality of the product and also test the quality of the soil. We also want to know the source of the AGO and how it entered inside the wells. Most people have vacated the area because of fire outbreak.” He also appealed to Lagos residents to inform the police of vandals.
