  • The Inspector of General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba, was on Wednesday booed by Lagos residents.

EKO HOT BLOG reports that the Inspector of General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba, was on Wednesday booed by Lagos residents during his visit to the state.

It was gathered that the IGP was booed by Lagos residents around Oshodi-Anthony Expressway while en route to an event.

Alkali’s mission in the state was disclosed but the state police public relations officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, stated that the IGP had just landed and his address would soon be made known.

In preparation for the arrival of the IGP, the police operatives blocked the Oshodi-Lagos Airport Road and Maryland-Ojota axis of the highway.

Many Lagos residents were, however, unhappy with the situation as they were stuck in traffic for hours.

As the IGP’s convoy passed the blocked road, the crowd booed and called him names in Yoruba. Some shouted “thief”, others screamed “you will never do well”.

The IGP’s visit comes three days to the June 12 nationwide protests that have been planned to take place at Freedom Park, Ojota, Lagos.


The protests, being championed by civil society organisations and human rights activists, are to kick against bad governance under the President Muhammadu Buhari regime.
