The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Umar Manko is to appear before the State House of Assembly on Monday to brief the House on what the police is doing to curb the wave of insecurity in some parts of the state in recent time.
The House had summoned the police boss to come and brief it on issues relating to widespread cultism prevalent in Yaba and public schools together with some security challenges.
A member of the House, Moshood Oshun had raised the issue of cultism penultimate week Under Matters of Urgent Public Important, saying it called for urgent intervention.
Manko would be expected to brief members over an alleged brutality of two women who were stripped naked by some youth in Ejigbo area of the state.
A group, Women Arise for Change Initiative had stormed the State Assembly, demanding the intervention of the House over the allegation on dehumanization.
In the petition titled “Dehumanization of two women in Ejigbo, Lagos State” and addressed to Ikuforiji, signed by the group’s President, Joe Okei-Odumakin, it alleged that the women were sometimes last year subjected to one of the most vicious forms of human rights abuses and the unspeakable horrors of brutality by certain depraved and savage men.
