Lagos State Police commissioner Owoseni has debunked accusations of extrajudicial killings against the police, insisting that armed robbery and kidnapping suspects arrested since August have been charged to court.
According to him, the command has in court 163 armed robbery cases involving 308 suspects.
Two kidnap cases with six suspects have also been charged to court since August, last year.
“We are saying this because of the impression being created. It is not true that we have been killing armed robbery and kidnapping suspects in our custody.
“It is also not true that we have been covering up our personnel who are found wanting. I can tell you that between July 2015 and last April, 136 policemen have either been queried or charged in orderly room for misconduct.
“Those bothering on criminality were immediately arraigned. We have been taking policemen through reorientation at the Police College. Over 850 personnel have already attended the courses and we are on the 13th batch,” Owoseni said.
