The sanctions placed on the erring officers by the Lagos state Neighborhood Safety Agency (LNSA) Inibehe said
While we commend the Lagos state Government for admitting that the conduct of its agents was criminal and unprofessional, we find the two months suspension meted on the two officers grossly insufficient and unacceptable, it is not a deterrence the officers should be dismissed snd diligently prosecuted in a court of law to serve as a deterrence to others.
Inibehe also said that the Lagos state Government have 28hrs to give in to their demands or face legal action.
