A police officer attached to the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the State Police Command, ASP Sunday Erhabor, has been honoured by the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for professionalism on duty.

Erhabor, in a viral video, was seen assaulted by one Victor Ebhomenyen at Four Points by Sheraton Hotel, Oniru in Lagos last the weekend.

In the video clip, the offender was seen threatening Erhabor for daring to apprehend him for committing traffic offence.

However, the police officer displayed a high level of professionalism throughout the physical assault despite being armed with Ak 47 rifle.

The governor said the action of the police officer is a testimonial and encouragement for other officers to show that they can be civil in the face of provocation or assault from suspected criminals.

He said, “This is our own little response to the very condemnable events that happened over the weekend. We are all very quick to condemn men of the Nigeria Police, especially when they are found wanting. We are always very quick to also admonish them. But the event that we all saw over the weekend showed that indeed there are some very commendable Police officers.

“In the real heat of provocation, ASP Erhabor displayed high quality of restraint. He displayed calmness and restrained himself from taking laws into his hands. And I think for that little gesture, it is important for us to bring him out so that we also can use him as a testimonial and encouragement for other Police officers to show that indeed they can be civil and that Police are meant to protect our citizens. They are meant to also be law abiding and the likes of ASP Sunday Erhabor today can be a source of encouragement to others,” Sanwo-Olu said.
