The Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of Zone 2 Command, Onikan, Lagos, AIG Abdulmajid Ali, has ordered that mental test be conducted on all serving officers in the command.
Ali, who also ordered drunkenness test on all personnel of the command, said the action became imperative in order to “avoid any accidental discharge or extrajudicial killing.”
A statement on Thursday by Zone 2 Command spokesman, Muyiwa Adejobi, quoted Ali as making this known during a newly introduced educative session for officers and men of the zonal command at Onikan, Lagos.
“He seized the opportunity to challenge policemen to read and imbibe the spirit of love to all and sundry they come in contact with.
“The AIG mandated the police medical unit to carry out drunkenness and mental checks on men (particularly those on operations) of the command to avoid any accidental discharge of extrajudicial killings,” the statement read in part.
