Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal.

Imohimi Edgal, the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, has directed the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) to released 40 suspected detained without cause.

He also ordered that 30 suspected cultism still in detention should be arraigned to court as soon as possible.

The police boss gave the orders during an unannounced visit to the unit stationed inside the Command Headquarters in Ikeja.

The Nation gather that apart from visiting FSARS, the police commissioner also visited some police division, where he inspected the premises and interviewed some of the suspects in custody.

While declaring that he would continue unannounced night patrols of police formations under his command, he admonished his personnel to respect the rights of suspects and ensure they were treated with dignity.

It was gathered that the night patrols were also not unconnected to resurgence of militancy in some parts of the state and pockets of cultism related activities.

Asked the reason for the patrol, Edgal said: “Patrols are a routine exercise in the force and we act according to directives from the Inspector-General of Police (IG), Ibrahim Idris. The IG said we should intensify efforts towards community and safety partnership.  That is exactly what we are doing.”
