The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Imohimi Edgal has advised officers of the Command to remain neutral and discharge their duties responsibly during the forthcoming elections.
Edgal stated this during an unscheduled visit to the Officers of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS), a unit of the Lagos State Police Command over the weekend at the squad’s parade ground in Alausa.
The Commissioner, who was in the company of the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Administration and Finance, DCP Elkanah Ayuba, warned the officers not to allow themselves to be used by any politician, stressing that they must display professionalism in the discharge of their duties and responsibilities.
He also called on the Officers of the Command to be courteous to members of the public and avoid engaging in acts capable of bringing bad reputation to the Command and the Force in general.
While commending the officers and men of the Rapid Response Squad for being first responders in times of distress and emergencies in the State, Edgal emphasised the need to continue to respond to distress calls speedily and give Lagosians the necessary psychological comfort at all times.
“Avoid leaving your beats, handle your arms professionally, you senior officers should supervise your subordinates and ensure total professionalism and remember their allegiance to the Force at all times”, he added.
