A rather bizarre scenario is currently playing out at the Lagos State Police Command over the dismissal of two police Inspectors suspected to be dating each other.

But the officers have been given seven working days to appeal their dismissal.

The affected officers are Inspectors Adedoyin Damilola with AP/NO 289317 and Makanjuola Modupe with AP/NO 234465, who served at the Bariga Division prior to their ordeal.

The woman Inspector, Modupe Makanjuola was accused by the Divisional Police Officers (DPO), SP Joshua Gbadegeshin of sleeping with his colleague, Inspector Damilola even as he had the intention of going out with her; an accusation the woman inspector denied.

However, it was gathered that the distraught DPO, who allegedly told the woman Inspector that he hadn’t asked any woman out in his life without success, vowed to see to the exit of her and her male Inspector friend out of the police force.

Afraid that the DPO might make good his threat to dismiss them, they jointly wrote a petition to the Commissioner of Police Lagos State Police Command dated August 21, 2023, accusing the DPO of threat to life, conduct likely to cause breach of peace and unprofessional act unbecoming of a senior police officer.

In the petition, the woman Inspector evidenced amorous WhatsApp messages to her from the DPO, which she turned down, including giving out official arms and police camouflage to civilian relatives to go on operation against police Act.

In the meantime, the DPO has written a strongly worded petition to the Commissioner of Police citing dereliction of duty, gross insubordination and disobedience to lawful order against the two inspectors; an action which resulted in their orderly room trial.

“But the Provost Marshall then called us and advised us to write a letter of withdrawal to the petition against the DPO on the ground that he is our senior and that the matter will be amicably settled, which we did on January 5, 2024, not knowing that it was a ploy to nail us.
