After shooting incidents, Lagos CP directs replacement of all officers in Ajah division



Abiodun Alabi, the commissioner of police (CP) in Lagos, has ordered the replacement of all officers attached to Ajiwe station in Ajah area of the state. 


Alabi also ordered that all shanties located around the Ajah police division be removed.


Benjamin Hundeyin, Lagos police spokesperson, disclosed the development on Monday, while responding to a report by Punch.


“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 materialize in a couple of days,” Hundeyin tweeted.

The development comes days after Drambi Vandi, an assistant superintendent of police attached to the Ajiwe police station, was involved in a shooting incident that led to the death of Bolanle Raheem, a lawyer.


The shooting incident occurred at the Ajah axis of Lagos.


The incident sparked widespread criticism, while the Lagos state government filed a one-count charge of unlawful killing against Vandi.


Subsequently, the officer was remanded at the Ikoyi correctional centre pending legal advice from the state directorate of public prosecution (DPP).


Vandi has also been suspended by the Police Service Commission (PSC).


Also, on December 6, a police inspector attached to the same station allegedly shot dead Gafaru Buraimoh, a resident of Happy Land estate in Ajah.
