''The Police now have shoot-at-sight order on any body found brandishing arms with intent to kill or maim.'' says a police commissioner

Over and over again,we hear reports of police men shooting at any little thing on argument or disagreement. For not giving a police man #50 at a police check point,a police man was reportedly said to have
shut on a commercial driver dead. There are dozens of this kind of report out there and I am sure that you know more about this.

All of these incidence happened when police was not given the right to shoot during the course of their duty on just any one they see or suspect as an armed robber. Recently,all maters have changed. The New Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohinmi held a meeting with a security and Police stakeholders recently,and here are their resolutions,henceforth:

1. All area commander will liaise with various community leaders to form a non-arms bearing vigilante groups and 3 armed Policemen will be attached to each vigilante group for night duty patrol. 

2. All uncompleted  and abandoned buildings will be routinely raided pending when the state government will take action on such buildings. Likewise no one is allowed to sleep in the market henceforth. 

3. The Police now have shoot-at-sight order on any body found brandishing arms with intent to kill or maim. 

4. All DPO's and Area Commanders should make themselves available for citizens complaints. 

5. All Police Patrol vans are now mobile police stations and citizens can lodge their immediate and urgent complaints to them, so as to save time and arrest such situations that needs urgent police presence.

6. A Citizens Complaint Center has been created to report any genuine complain about the police and the New Commissioner of Police released 10 mobile numbers of the complaints center so that citizens can report any erring officers or  Police Station...
