“SHUT DOWN All BEER PARLOURS Within Lagos Police Community” – Lagos State CP Orders

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, has ordered the closure of all beer parlours within the police community in the state.

His order comes after a police officer in the command, Kadima Useni with appointment number 176219, was dismissed after a viral video of him showed him drunk while on duty around the Akowonjo, Dopemu area of the state.

The CP believes shutting down the beer parlours will avoid a recurrence of such and the dismissal of the officer will serve as a deterrent to others.

According to the state police command spokesperson, CSP Chike Oti, the Lagos police boss directed the officer in charge of the Command Provost Section to embark on tour of all police formations and barracks within the state with a view to identifying and shutting all beer parlours within the police community so as to prevent a reoccurence of such an embarrassment.

In the same vein, the commissioner warned against offering policemen alcoholic drinks while on duty by members of the public. He added that henceforth any policeman found drunk on duty will be visited with similar punishment.
