The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr Zubairu Muazu, on Tuesday inaugurated a statement-taking room for the CID Panti, Yaba, warning that policemen collecting money for bail were not different from kidnappers and would not be spared.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the facility was provided by the Rule of Law and Anti-corruption (RoLAC) Programme managed by the British Council and funded by European Union.

At the inauguration on Tuesday, Muazu commended RoLAC for the initiative, noting that statement-taking was important in police investigation

The commissioner said that statement-taking was the foundation of police investigation.

He said the facility was important to police operations, assuring the British Council that it would be put to effective use.

The Lagos police boss warned officers men of the command against corrupt activities, saying that anyone caught would be decisively dealt with.

“I advise that we stay far away from corruption. It gives us bad name as it is unprofessional and unethical

He cautioned them against collecting money for bail.

“We have always said bail is free and we mean it. I keep saying that any policeman who collects money for bail is not different from a kidnapper. The only difference is that everyone knows where you kept the suspects.

“The country is hard and we need the people more than they need us. Let us stay far from corruption,” he said.

Muazu commended DCP Yetunde Longe in charge of the CID for diligence.

He assured members of the public that the facility would be utilised effectively.

Commenting, DCP Longe said the CID was prepared to embrace world best practices in investigation.

She commended ROLAC for donating equipment and training officers attached to the department.

“This will in no small measure add value to our productivity. I want to assure the CP, the donor and other stakeholders that this facility will be judiciously utilised for the intended purpose.

“The vision and mission of the I-G, Mohammed Adamu, to ensure diligent investigations is a task that must be accomplished,” she said.

The Lagos State Director of Public Prosecutions, Mrs Titilayo Shitta-Bay, said she was delighted to witness the inauguration, noting that the facility was important to police investigations.

She said that there had been issues with the manner in which statements were being taken from suspects.

She noted that the Administration of Criminal Justice Laws, 2015, mandated recording of statements.

Mrs Ajibola Ijimakinwa, the Lagos State Programme Coordinator of RoLAC, said that the programme was aimed at enhancing good governance, curbing corruption and ensuring that police cases would have successful prosecution.

“This is why we work and partner with the police to ensure critical laws are adhered to.

“We are looking at setting up more statement-taking rooms in Lagos as we look forward to the effective use of the facility,” she said.

NAN reports that the three-room facility has investigating/statement taking rooms and a monitoring centre where police officers investigating cases are monitored.
