The Nigeria Police Force has said the force would replace all its officers attached to Ajiwe station Division of Lagos state command.
This was made known by Benjamin Hundeyin, Lagos police spokesperson in a tweet on Monday.
The Police PPRO disclosed that the state Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, had ordered the replacement of all officers attached to Ajiwe station in Ajah area of the state.
It was also learned that all shanties located around the Ajah police division were ordered to be removed.
“In addition, the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command, CP Abiodun Alabi, fdc has already effected the transfer out of ALL personnel of the division, with replacement
from other divisions. This would fully materialise in a couple of days,” Hundeyin tweeted.
The news comes just days after Drambi Vandi, an assistant superintendent of police assigned to the Ajiwe police station, was involved in a shooting that resulted in the death of lawyer Bolanle Raheem.
The shooting occurred on the Ajah axis of Lagos.
The incident drew widespread condemnation, and the Lagos state government charged Vandi with unlawful killing on a single count.
Following that, the officer was remanded in custody at the Ikoyi correctional facility pending legal advice from the state directorate of public prosecution (DPP).
The Police Service Commission also suspended Vandi (PSC).
In addition, on December 6, a police inspector assigned to the same station allegedly shot and killed Gafaru Buraimoh, a resident of Ajah’s Happy Land estate.
