The Lagos State Police Command has arrested 13 out of the 19 police operatives, who raided the Lakers County night club in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State on Sunday, for unprofessional conduct.

It was earlier reported that the management of the club had sought redress over the attack by men of the Anti-Cultism Unit of the Lagos State Police Command, who invaded its premises and seized from its customers and workers valuables and cash running into several millions of naira.

It was also reported that closed-circuit television footage provided by the club’s management showed how the officers perpetuated the act that sent shivers down the spines of the customers and workers on duty in the club at the time, while some of the victims have yet to recover their belongings seized by the police officers during the raid.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Chike Oti, said in a statement on Wednesday that the Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, had directed that all the policemen involved in the operation be invited for questioning, adding that 13 out of the 19 officers had been arrested, while the rest were expected to report to the investigative body before midnight on Thursday.

“Meanwhile, a team of detectives has been dispatched to the hotel to get evidence that will aid in the investigation and, ultimately, the prosecution of officers found culpable.”
