Lagos Police Commissioner, Fatai Owoseni
Robbers in custody at a police station in Isheri Osun, Lagos escaped from their cell at night by removing the station’s roof without the knowledge of the officers on duty.
Residents of the neighborhood are in shock at the gross incompetence and are speculating that the officers on duty that day were either sleeping, drunk, or they were not telling the entire truth, P.M. Express reports.
The police led by their Divisional Police Officer, CSP Camelius began a manhunt for the suspects who were said to be at large. This led to the arrest of a man called Bashiru Rabiu who was allegedly involved in the cell break. He was charged before the Isolo Magistrates court for willful damage and escape from lawful custody under the criminal code. Bashiru denied involvement and pleaded not guilty.
The presiding Magistrate, Mr A.O. Ogbe granted Bashiru bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in the like sum.
He was remanded in prison custody pending when he will perfect his bail condition.
