The Lagos State Law Enforcement Training Institute (LETI), has urged Officers and men of the Lagos State Law Enforcement Agencies to raise their compliance to rules and regulations. 

In a recent release, the Head of LETI, Prince Ifalade Oyekan commiserated with the families of those who lost their lives during the #endsars# protest that rocked the Country and prayed that God give their families the fortitude to bear the irreparable losses. 

He condemned the attack on Law Enforcement Officers, public and private properties saying, " only criminals will attack Law Enforcement Officers without provocation. And it is unthinkable to hear that our Law Enforcement Officers, who had no part in the issues raised were recklessly attacked during the protest. " 

It will be recalled that the 2020 Annual In-service Training for Law Enforcement Officers in Lagos State is ongoing, which left some of the participating Law Enforcement Officers stranded at the Institute. 

Out of the 22 Officers left stranded, 3 Officers were reported to have rejected all entreaties by the Institute's management to stay back till things had calmed down. However, in their attempt to navigate their ways home, they were attacked by hoodlums and injured.

The Lagos State Government provided food and accommodation for the other stranded officers who stayed behind till things were calm when they left for their various homes. It is important to note that they all arrived home safely. 

Following the restoration of order, Prince Ifalade Oyekan announced the commencement of the final phase of the 2020 Annual In-service Training, while reiterating the need for Officers to take all safety precautions as prescribed by the Management of LETI.
