You are supporting impunity, Lagos should have implemented Supreme court Verdict since 2012 - Malami slams  South-west Governors as he confirms sending Policemen to Lagos

Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN) has confirmed sending policemen to Magodo Phase 2 Estate area of Lagos State.

This came after South-West governors took a swipe at him and the Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba over the deployment of police to the Lagos community.

The Governors in a statement released by their Chairman, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo state, accused the IGP and AGF of showing “utter disrespect and gross moral turpitude.”

In the statement titled ‘Southwest Governors: Police officer’s disrespect to Sanwo-Olu an unacceptable intrusion,’ they stated that they received with disdain, videos of a “disgraceful exchange between a police officer, a CSP, and the Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the supposed chief security officer of the state at the Magodo Residential Estate.”

They stated that the “dubiously christened federalism”, treats elected representatives of the people as “mere prefects while appointed office holders ride roughshod over them as lords of the Manor. ”

They also called on President Muhammadu Buhari to curb the excesses of certain elements bent on acting in a manner capable of eroding the bond of trust existing between the people and the Federal Government.

The statement read “We are in possession of a video which has gone viral on the social media concerning the disgraceful exchange between a police officer, a CSP, and the governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the supposed Chief Security Officer of the state, at the Magodo Residential Estate.

“The content of the video is very disconcerting, and this is being charitable. The utter disrespect, which underlines the response of the officer to the governor establishes, beyond doubt, the impracticability of the current system, dubiously christened “federalism”. An arrangement, which compels the governor of a state to seek clarifications on security issues in his jurisdiction from totally extraneous bodies or persons, is a sure recipe for anarchy.
