Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has disclosed that law enforcement officers in the state would start wearing body cameras.
Speaking on Tuesday, the Lagos governor stated that plans were already in motion to that effect.
While revealed that law enforcement officers would be trained on the use of the equipment, Sanwo-Olu added that they would be trained by the Lagos state Law Enforcement Training Institute (LETI).
Recall that the general manager of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), Olajide Oduyoye, had back in February said the officers will use cameras to capture traffic violations.
“This year, we are going to be having body cameras on officers to capture incidences because things happen so fast,” he had said.
“You can’t really say let me get my camera. But if you have your body camera on that is recording, then you can capture all sorts of different things that you can use against offenders.
“Those who willfully disobey traffic signs go in the middle of the night to remove those signs. When they are caught, they will say that there were no signs. They go and remove the signs to prove they aren’t aware of the signs. This happens all the time.”
