SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the spokesperson of the Lagos state Police Command, has explained why men of the state police command jump into a commuter’s vehicle when an arrest is being carried out.


While responding to a Twitter user, Hundeyin stated that the officers are supposed to tow the vehicle of an offender to the station but the command has no towing vehicle, so officers have no choice but to hop into the vehicle of an offender to carry out an arrest.


The Twitter user asked the question while reacting to the video of a couple having an altercation with some officers in Lagos last Sunday, July 24. The couple was on Monday, July 25 arraigned before the court and then remanded in Kirikiri prison.


”Nigeria police is always unprofessional, why enter the vehicle, when you are suppose to tow it. Your men should avoid entering peoples vehicle. We need a complete video as it will reveal more shortcoming from your men.”the twitter user wrote


Responding to the tweet, Hundeyin wrote;

” True, we were supposed to tow the vehicle but we do not have any towing vehicle. The last time we hired a towing vehicle and put the bill on the offender, he screamed all over the place that the police extorted him. I’m happy the Police Trust Fund will supply some soon.”
