Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has announced that the officers of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad in the state no longer have the power to unilaterally detain suspects.

Odumosu, who stated this on Tuesday morning while featuring on Channels Television‘s programme, Sunrise Daily, said he held a sensitisation lecture with the officers of the Force on Monday to sensitise them on the new directive of the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu.

Speaking on Tuesday, the Lagos Commissioner of Police said the recent directive by the IGP will be more effective than earlier directives issued to curtail the excesses of SARS operatives.

Odumosu said, “It is going to be different because there will be more monitoring and more supervision.

“The additional directive I gave yesterday (Monday) is that they must not even go to investigate any case without booking their arrival at the Area Commander’s office so that the Area Commander will know that they are in that area doing what they ought to do. And once they finish, they must go back and file entry.

“Secondly, I gave a directive that they must not detain anybody in their cells any longer. They can only detain at my office or at the Area Commander’s office. And the Area Commander must interview any suspect they want to detain and ascertain that the suspect had done what warranted being detained.

“All these are additional measures put in place to make sure that the supervision is effective. So, there is more supervision now and it going to be more effective now.”
