Confirmed: Police DPO in charge of #Synagogue church area is an ardent church member

by Adedayo Ademuwagun

On Sunday November 9, this YNaija journalist reported that CSP Haruna Alaba, the DPO in charge of the police division in Ikotun, might be a member of the Synagogue church following his appearance in a video clip of one of the church’s services.

Now, we can confirm that the police boss is actually a longtime, ardent member of the church.

The Synagogue church is under the Ikotun police division.

According to an inside source at the division, Alaba has been a member of Synagogue for a significant length of time and may have compromised in his duties and responsibilities to the police, in favour of his church.

If this has happened, Alaba has violated Section 353 of the Nigeria Police Act and Regulations, which says that “a police officer shall not conduct himself in such a manner as to bring his private interests into conflict with his public duties or in such manner as is likely to cause a suspicion in the mind of any reasonable person that he has — allowed his private interests to come into conflict with his public duties.”

Based on this information, he may have also breached Section 340 of the Nigeria Police Act and Regulations, which says a police officer is required to develop the attributes of “integrity, in refusing to allow religious, racial, political or personal feelings, or other considerations to influence him in the execution of his duties.”

Has Haruna Alaba been using his position as DPO to favour the church and direct the Ikotun division’s affairs in a way that is illegal and a violation of the Nigeria Police Act and Regulations?

    And by the way, THIS makes sense in every way.
