The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, has ordered that all beer parlours within the police community in the state be shut down.
He gave the order on Wednesday following the dismissal of an officer who was said to have been found drunk while on duty around the Akowonjo, Dopemu area of the state.
This was disclosed in a statement issued by the Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Chike Oti.
The CP believes shutting down the beer parlours will avoid a recurrence of such and the dismissal of the officer will serve as a deterrent to others.
In the statement, the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim K. Idris whose attention was drawn to a video of the drunk officer, immediately directed the CP to discover his identity and mete out an appropriate disciplinary action.
The officer has since been dismissed after a thorough investigation.
