The police had on Sunday stormed the cub between the hours of 1.40am and 2.30am and arrested 41 clubgoers.
A statement released by Ademuyiwa Adejobi, the spokesperson of the command, today March 8, has it that the Commissioner made the pronouncement while speaking with officers Area Commanders and DPOs at the POWA Hall, Oduduwa Ikeja, today Monday, March 8. He instructed that the senior police officers be redeployed to a yet-to-be ascertained station.
The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, had warned Area Commander and DPOs to ensure that COVID19 protocols in their areas are enforced, and on no account should any of them allow gross violation of the protocols in the state, but yet, many violate these protocols with impunity.
He still went on to reiterate and warned the DPOs against encouraging the violation of COVID-19 protocols in their areas particularly clubbing and non-wearing of nose masks as charity begins at home, and that he will pay them surprise visits to catch them unawares.
