The Zone 2 Command of the Police Force has issued a response to a viral video shared by Twitter user @EmmCee_RNB on January 25, 2024. In the video, three individuals claiming to be police officers attached to Zone 2 Command were seen demanding a tinted permit from a motorist.
The officers involved were identified as ASP KENEDY EREOAH, INSPR ADEMILUYI ADEKUNLE, and INSPR AYO GBENGA, all stationed at the Zonal Intelligence Bureau, Zone 2 Headquarters in Onikan, Lagos.
