Disturbing! Neighbourhood Watch officers allegedly torture resident in Surulere

Some operatives of the newly revamped Lagos State Neighbourhood Safety Agency are in the eyes of the storm for allegedly torturing some residents in Surulere, Lagos Mainland.

During the process, the eight officers who have since been suspended by the agency reportedl inflicted injuries on a commercial motorcyclist in the community.

According to the Chairman, LNSA, Mr Israel Ajao, while addressing Divisional Commanders and Corps Officers in the state, “the officers were also fighting in the public and inflicted injuries on a commercial motorcyclist.”

He said that the agency had adopted tough measures to curb acts of indiscipline by officers stressing that the organisation would no longer tolerate any act of misconduct or over-zealousness from officers.

Commending officers of the agency who are of good character, Ajao called for cooperation from members of the public by reporting erring officers within their neighbourhood.

Recall that the agency was recently rocked by protests from the Corps officers over unpaid salaries and other irregularities.  As a direct response, the agency paid the emoluments of the officers affected in batches.
