The Lagos State Police Command has issued directive to Police officers working in Lagos State to desist from wearing mufti while on duty.
The order was given by the state Commissioner of Police Mr. Edgal Imohimi, at the 3rd Stakeholders Security Meeting on Security Policing, organised by the Area ‘D’ Command, Mushin, with the theme: ‘Policing the Community by the Community.’
Speaking at the occasion, Imohimi said anyone who flaunted the order would be severely dealt with.
He said: “Henceforth, no policeman should carry out operational duties in Lagos in mufti without police uniform. The only units allowed to wear jackets with the inscription of his unit on it are the Anti Cultism unit, Anti Kidnapping unit, RAIDER; and the Federal Special Anti Robbery Squad, FSARS.
“Every other policeman on operational duties must be in uniform. They will be in mufti only if they are attached to the investigation unit of the command. We don’t want any policeman to cause us any embarrassment,” he stressed
