Police sergeant caught smoking weed slaps DPO in Lagos


A police sergeant has been arrested after he was caught smoking Indian hemp at an event on Lagos Island.

The sergeant, identified as Agu, also allegedly slapped the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Lion Building Police Division, Lagos State, who attempted to arrest him.

It was gathered that a resident had alerted the Area Commander, Area A Command, ACP Sola Akinyede, aka Solebo, to the conduct of the policeman.

The commander then directed the DPO to go and arrest Agu.

But Agu went berserk and dared the officer and other policemen who attempted to arrest him.

During the shouting match that ensued, Agu slapped the DPO but was eventually overpowered.

A resident narrated the incident to Punch: “The sergeant was at the 155 anniversary of Epetedo. He smoked from the beginning of the party till the early hours of the next day.

“He shot into the air. Somebody called the Area Commander, who sent the DPO to the area, together with some junior policemen.

“He manhandled the DPO and slapped his face. A police team went to search his apartment at the police barracks on Beecroft Street, Lagos Island. They found Indian hemp in his house.

“He was detained at the Lion Building Police Station. He was at the event on illegal duty.

“The police authorities have been pleading with the organisers of the event not to let the matter get into the public domain. The sergeant has been released.”

Agu is attached to the Nigeria Police Force Headquarters Annex, Kam Salem House, Obalende.

Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, confirmed Agu’s arrest.

“The DPO got a complaint from members of the public that a policeman was causing disturbance at the event”, he said.

“The DPO and some policemen went to the area and he was picked up. He was not caught smoking or found with any arm and there was no case of assault.

“A search was also conducted on his residence, but nothing incriminating was found. He has been released although he is undergoing an orderly room trial.”

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it.

This is w…
