The career of a police sergeant may be hanging in the balance after he was said to have been caught smoking Indian hemp at a function on Lagos Island. It was learnt that the sergeant, identified as Agu, armed and drunk, also allegedly slapped the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Lion Building Police Division, Lagos, who attempted to arrest him at the scene.

A resident, it was learnt, had alerted the Area Commander, Area A, ACP Sola Akinyede, aka Solebo, to the conduct of the policeman at the event. It was said that the commander directed the DPO to go to the area and pick up the erring cop. But Agu went haywire as the DPO, in company with some other policemen, wanted to arrest him. He reportedly engaged the DPO in an altercation and slapped him.

According to The Punch, a resident, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said after Agu was overpowered, a team of policemen went to his house and recovered some quantities of cannabis.

The resident said, “The sergeant was at the 155 anniversary of Epetedo on Friday, September 15. He was smoked from the beginning of the party till the early hours of Saturday. He shot into the air. Somebody called the Area Commander, who sent the DPO to the area together with some junior policemen.

“He manhandled the DPO and slapped his face. A police team went to search his apartment at the police barracks on Beecroft Street, Lagos Island. They found Indian hemp in his house. He was detained at the Lion Building Police Station. He was at the event on illegal duty.

“The police authorities have been pleading with the organisers of the event not to let the matter get into the public domain. The sergeant has been released.”

Another source stated that the policeman was attached to the Nigeria Police Force Headquarters Annex, Kam Salem House, Obalende.

He said Agu was not sober when he was taken to the Area Commander, adding that a former Deputy Inspector-General (DIG) of Police had intervened in the matter to let the sergeant off the hook.

While confirming the incident, the Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole said Agu did not assault the DPO.
