9Janewshub.com.ng reports that Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP. Abiodun Alabi has ordered arrest of a socialite who shared premium motor spirit (PMS) otherwise known as petrol as a souvenir at a party.
The development was conveyed through a press release by the state police Public Relations Officer, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, Anipr.
A copy of the statement obtained by 9Janewshub.com.ng read as thus; “Attention of the Lagos State Police Command has been drawn to a video going viral in the social media in which some individuals and organisers of an event were seen giving out some kegs containing PMS (petrol) as souvenirs.
The statement further maintained that It’s regrettable that in spite of series of warnings and sensitization carried out by the Police and other relevant government agencies, some individuals could be handling such combustible substance in a public place in total disregard to safety of lives and properties.
Still concerned about the safety, and protection of lives and properties of citizens, the Lagos State Police Command once again appeals to citizens to avoid this kind of condemnable act in the name of generosity.
Although the event centre where the distribution of the souvenirs took place has been located and subsequently sealed, the Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi, fdc, mnim, psc, has in addition, ordered the arrest of all persons involved in this regrettable and reprehensible act.
