Police inspector dismissed for killing Lagos resident
The police have dismissed an inspector, Jonathan Kampani, attached to its Mounted Troop for killing a Lagos resident, Jelili Bakare, at Quinox Lounge.
A statement by Olumuyuwa Adejobi, spokesman for the police in Lagos, on Sunday said Mr Kampani, with force No. 278055, committed the offence on March 18, at Sangotedo.
Mr Adejobi added the command had conveyed the officer’s dismissal to the Deputy Commissioner of Police, State CID, Panti, Yaba for prosecution, as advised by Lagos State Department of Public Prosecution.
“The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, ordered for the arrest and immediate orderly room trial of the inspector after the incident.
“He also led a team of senior officers in the command to pay a condolence visit to the family of the deceased at Chief Bakare’s House, Ajiranland, Eti-Osa Local Government of Lagos State, on Saturday, March 27,” Adejobi said.
The spokesman disclosed that the police commissioner promised that justice would be dispensed and urged the general public, especially the deceased’s family, to be patient.
The police chief also urged the deceased family to trust the police and the judiciary to give the case the necessary attention and commitment.
However, the police boss reiterated his zero tolerance for professional misconduct and inappropriate behaviour among police personnel in the state.
