Police desert duty posts in Lagos

Investigations by Theplebisciteworld.com reporters in Lagos have revealed that operatives of the Lagos State Police Command, Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) and the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) have all deserted their duty posts.

This development is a fallout of the #EndSARS violence which saw over six policemen killed with 38 others severely injured and currently receiving treatment. Four civilians were also reported dead from the violence attacks by hoodlums.

Following the widespread violence in the state, the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu on Saturday directed members of the Force to reclaim space to bring an end to the wanton destruction of lives and properties. However, days after the order, hoodlums in some parts of the state are still having a free-for-all without questioning or arrests made by the police.
