Policemen Caught Assaulting Young Lawyer: Lagos CP Orders for Trial (see details)


The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, has ordered that the two police officers caught on camera assaulting a young lawyer, Olakunle Kareem, should be tried on oath. In a press statement obtained by Saharareporters, the commissioner of Police described the conduct of the policemen as unprofessional, and also ordered the Deputy Commissioner of Police, SCIID Panti Yaba to investigate the squabble that led to the arrest of the young lawyer.

Kareem had gone to his former employer, Oluyomi Olawore, in his chambers, Olawore & Co, at No 28/30 Macarty Street, Lagos Island, to demand for his unpaid salary. Olawore then called the Police in to arrest Kareem, who was alleged to have disconnected the company’s CCTV camera in protest against the withholding of his salary.

However, the policemen were seen on camera slapping Kareem before he was ventually taken out of the law firm. Reacting to the video, Imohimi said the police officers captured on camera are not members of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) as earlier reported by some online platforms.
