A Lagos-based human rights activist, Comrade Adeniyi Alimi Sulaiman, has petitioned the Police high command, seeking disciplinary actions against two errant personnel attached to the ‘Area F’ Police Station.

Specifically, Sulaiman is seeking action against Mrs. Adenike Amoo, a superintendent of police and Corporal Alasa Jimoh whom he has accused of deliberately extorting and harassing him and two others, Comrade James Michael and Ms. Ogunlade Deborah.

In the letter addressed to the Inspector-General of the Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, dated 1st December, 2016 Sulaiman alleged that he had gone to the Police Station to pursue a petition he had written to the leadership of the Police when the incidence occurred.

According to him, Amoo is the team leader of the Human Rights Desk while Jimoh was said to be on duty as a guard manning entrance to the station as at the time the incidence occurred.

Narrating his ordeal, Sulaiman stated that “When we got to the gate of the station, we told Jimoh our mission, which was that we wanted to see one Inspector Friday whom we had been referred to by the state command based on a petition that had been written in respect of Ms. Ogunlade.”

According to the activist, Jimoh remained adamant saying his team could not secure access without parting with some gratification, “but we insisted that we will report him to his boss who was the Area Commander before finally giving us access. He changed his mind when we told him that we could only give him marked money.”

In the letter, Sulaiman wrote that “The conduct runs contrary to Section 98, 99 and 494 of the Criminal Code and Section 172, 209 with Fifth Schedule Part One, Sections 6 and 8 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as Amended).”

He accused Amoo who was the head of the Desk of allegedly refusing to make them write a statement of complaint when she received them in audience saying that could only happen when they pay for statement form and that the Police Commissioner lacked the required powers to compel her to do things against her will.

He stated that the action runs contrary to the etiquette of Police work as encoded in Section 34 (1), saying that “All we need in the Force is nothing but refined, reformed, resourceful, disciplined and dedicated men and women. Who will project the good image of the Force both at home and abroad.

“We further request from the Federal Ministry of Police Affairs, Police Service Commission and the Nigeria Police Council to totally concentrate and abrogate the idiosyncratic tendency and constabulary mentality of the personnel.”
