The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu has ordered the detention and room trial of an Inspector for hitting a journalist with a stick on the cost of duty during a protest around Ikeja area, Lagos State.According to the Chief Press Secretary to Lagos State, Gboyega Akosile stated on his social platform on Thursday that the preliminary findings carried out by the CP Odumosu and eye witness accounts from senior officers on ground, revealed that the cop suddenly attacked the journalist, without any previous altercation or confrontation.

CP Odumosu who was monitoring the deployment and operational activities of officers and men of the command for the enforcement of the order against unlawful gathering and protest by some unpatriotic individuals, raced to the scene. He personally moved the injured journalist to the Police Cottage (hospital) at Area F, GRA, Ikeja, where he personally waited and ensured the injured journalist was given immediate and best medical treatment, while cut-off his movements to stay throughout the journalist’s treatment and subsequent discharge.He urged the general public to believe in the command’s commitment to sanitizing and reforming the policing  system in Lagos State in conformity with the international standards. “The officer’s trial will serve as deterrent to others who are fond of engaging in unprofessional and unethical conducts”.
