Inspector Dele Reuben, the officer seen in a viral video harassing a motorist for the now-suspended tinted glasses permit, has been detained, according to the Lagos State Police Command.
The erring officer is currently facing an orderly room trial, according to a statement provided by the command’s spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin.
In part, the statement reads:
''His arrest came on the heels of the directive of the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi, fdc, mnim, psc that the errant officer be identified, arrested and decisively dealt with. It is pertinent to reiterate that issuance of tinted glasses permit remains suspended by the Force Management to enable an upgrade of the tinted glasses permit portal. In effect, while all existing tinted glasses permit remain valid, issuance of new permits is yet to resume. CP Alabi has further reiterated to his officer and men his zero tolerance for harassment, extortion and abuse of rights of citizens. He equally assured the general public that the Lagos State Police Command under his watch will continually strengthen its internal disciplinary mechanisms.''
