The Commissioner of Police in Lagos state, Edgal Imohimi, has said that his men have arrested nine policemen and three others for engaging in corruption practices.
Imohimi said yesterday that the arrest was in line with the command’s zero tolerance for corruption.
The Police boss also disclosed that two divisional police officers in the areas under which those arrested operated were serving, have been issued queries after the arrests.
He said based on his directive, operatives of the X-Squad, which is tasked with monitoring the activities of police operatives for corrupt practices, have intensified their operations, leading to the arrests.
“Nine policemen and a senior traffic warden alongside two of their accomplices popularly known as ‘Camp Boys’ or ‘Antelopes’ were arrested between September 1 and 18, 2017
“The two accomplices were arrested separately – along Ikotun Road and along Igando Road – for aiding some unscrupulous policemen” in extorting money from motorists at the respective areas where they were caught.
“The policemen arrested are currently undergoing departmental orderly room trial to ensure a total purging of the command of its bad eggs, while their civilian accomplices are being charged to court for related offences,” the commissioner told journalists.
