The Lagos State Neighbourhood Agency (LSNA) officers who manhandled an Uber driver are set to face internal trial as the Agency reacts to the viral video that surfaced online.

Recall that the Uber driver, who refused entering into the van, was manhandled by police officers and officers of LSNA at Lekki Toll gate for the End SARS memorial.

The victim was wounded while resisting security agents who tried to force him into the van.

The Management of the Lagos State Neighbourhood Agency said its officers captured in the viral video at the scene of the EndSARS anniversary will face an internal orderly trial to determine their culpability and dealt with if found guilty.

General Manager of LSNA, Prince Ifalade Oyekan condemned the conduct of the Officers, describing it as below the standard operating procedure of the Agency.

Part of the statement read: “As an Agency striving to meet its role in the THEMES Agenda of the Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu Administration, the Agency will not condone any form of indiscipline or actions capable of bringing it to disrepute, while it will as a socially responsible management give the Officers the opportunity for fair hearing.

“Consequently, these officers will face an internal orderly trial to determine their culpability in the said event and dealt with if found guilty.”

The Agency, however apologised to the public and promised to ensure that justice was served.
