The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Abiodun Alabi, has appealed of members of the public to report any police officer carrying out their official duties while on mufti.
He made the appeal through a statement issued on Saturday by the spokesman of the command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin.
Alabi said that the command would not hesitate to take appropriate disciplinary actions againt erring police personnel hence reflecting to the statement of the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Usman Baba, on March 12, warned police officers against the use of mufti and unauthorized outfits while on duty.
The Lagos police boss, therefore, warned all area commanders, tactical commanders and divisional police officers to ensure total compliance by the officers and men.
He said that they must be in approved uniforms while on patrol and stop-and-search duties.
Alabi also stressed that the command would hold liable any supervisor or head of department under whose jurisdiction this directive would be flouted.
