The Lagos State Police Command has received reports that Kamsi Ochuko, a witness who testified before the recently concluded Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Restitution for Victims of SARS-Related Abuses and Other Matters, was assaulted by unknown persons.
Kamsi described how she was attacked by unknown men at the Crown Estate bus stop in Sangotedo, Lagos, on Sunday, November 21.
Adesina Ogunlana, Counsel to EndSARS Protesters, also alleged that Kamsi was attacked by persons, leaving her with a deep cut on her hand.
The Lagos State Police Command’s statutory duty, according to CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, the state police command’s spokesperson, is to protect lives and property, as well as apprehend and prosecute offenders.
“Among other issues, the Lagos State Police Command has a statutory duty to protect lives and property, apprehend and prosecute offenders.” Even in the face of difficult challenges, the police will not abdicate the important responsibilities.
As a result, CP Hakeem Odumosu, the Commissioner of Police, urges anyone who has been physically attacked for whatever reason in any part of the state to lodge a formal complaint at the nearest police station where the incident allegedly occurred. This will allow the police to take appropriate action by investigating and prosecuting the case diligently.
The Commissioner of Police wishes to reiterate the Command’s responsibility for public safety.
The Commissioner of Police reaffirms the Command’s commitment to protecting the lives and property of all residents of the state, regardless of their status,” according to the statement.
