    Do not sit on the lap of people, CP Owoseni warns underaged children in Lagos

     By Emmanuel Udom

    Lagos state police commissioner, Fatai Owoseni, on Wednesday warned underaged children to desist from making it a habit to always sit on the laps of their parents, relations and friends either at home or inside commercial buses.
    Owoseni said the crime trends recorded by the police in recent times reveal the upsurge in cases of homosexuality and rape of minors, being perpetuated by some parents, relations and friends of under-aged children.

    The Lagos police boss was speaking during the Career Talk Day packaged as part of activities marking the Police Week for 2016, organized by the state police command at POWA Hall, in GRA, Ikeja.

     His words: “Statistics showed that a greater percentage of cases of rape or homosexuality involving underaged boys and girls are perpetuated by parents, relatives or friends of these children”.

    He however advised children to always imbibe the habit of walking in groups to and from their schools, along streets that are well lighted especially in the night, raise alarm if strangers attempt to give them gifts such as sweets, biscuits, etc and refrain from opening parcels brought by the mail runners, without the approval of their parents or wards, even it is addressed to them.

    Also speaking on the theme: “The Police is your Friend” as part of the activities lined up for the Career Talk Monday Agbonika, a chief superintendent of police,  called on the primary and secondary school students that attended the event  to consider joining the Nigeria Police Force on the completion of their education.

    Agbonika, who is also the divisional police officer of Festac Police station, said that interested persons with NCE, OND, GCE and A-Levels could join the police as Recruit Constable and grow through the ranks to eventually become an Inspector-General of Police within a period of 35 years.

    For those with BSC, BA or LLB, the entry point and age are: Cadet Assistant Superintendent of Police and between 19 to 25 years respectively, where they are expected to also grow through the ranks to the highest level of IGP.  

    CSP Agbonika further explained that the police force is versatile with various departments and units for people who read Arts, Science or Social Sciences   

     Some of the schools that participated in the event are: Victory Grammar School, Ikeja, Police Children School, Ikeja, Springfield Comprehensive School, Ikorodu, Lara Secondary School, Lagos, and Nazareth group of Schools, Lagos, among others.
