Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of Zone 2 Command comprising Lagos and Ogun States, AIG Ari Muhammed Ali, has ordered the dismissal of AP. No. 279495 Inspector Sunday Adetoye and AP. No. 223521 Inspector Ogunleye Stephen attached to the Zonal Command Headquarters Onikan Lagos for the offences of armed robbery, official corruption and illegal duty.

A statement released by SP. UMMA TUNNI AYUBA, Zone 2 PRO, says the erring officers, who were at the time facing trial for a similar offence, on November 23, 2023, at about 2200hrs, went in the company of three others; two members of Vigilante Group, one Semiu Afisu’M’, one Abidoye Femi ‘M’, and one Charles John ‘M’ (the driver), to the residence of one Taiwo Monsuru, ‘M’, and one Akintola Sunday, ‘M’, at Obada-Oko in Ogun State; armed with 2 SMG rifles and live ammunition, conducted a search without a warrant where they made away with 5 iPhones, 1 Samsung smartphone, 1 Tecno smartphone, and 2 laptop computers.

“Police officers attached to Ifo Division mounted a roadblock after other residents of the apartment informed them of the incident with the description of the vehicle, which led to the apprehension of the occupants of the vehicle without ASP Ajayi Victor ‘m’ who led the illegal operation and is currently at large.”

The statement added that the AIG has directed that the dismissed officers be charged to court alongside the civilians involved, while he urged all officers and men of the force to remain professional in the discharge of their duties in accordance with the law, as anyone found wanting will be accountable for his/her action or inaction.
