December 21, 2015 – Ikorodu Lagos Police DPO Arrested For Allowing Suspect To Escape From Station
Lagos Police Commissioner Fatai Owoseni has ordered the arrest of a DPO attached to Igbogbo Police station in Ikorodu Lagos for alleging aiding the escape of a suspect from police custody.
It was gathered that the CP invited prison escapee Waidi Kabiru’s family and the DPO for a meeting at the state police command headquarters, Ikeja, penultimate Saturday, where he gave the directive.
Prior to the meeting, the parents – Karimat Adebanbi and Bisiriyu Kabiru – had accused the police of being indifferent to the whereabouts of their son, despite a petition sent to the CP.
The unidentified DPO has been detained at SCID in Yaba for failing to account for the whereabouts of Waidi Kabiru, who was abducted from the station about a month ago.
