This was disclosed in a statement signed by the Force spokesman, SP Olumuyiwa Adejobi. 


The statement read: "the police chief, who was monitoring the deployment and operational activities of officers and men of the command for the enforcement of the order against unlawful gathering and protest by some unpatriotic individuals, raced to the scene and personally moved the injured journalist to the Police Cottage(hospital) at Area F, GRA, Ikeja, where he personally waited and ensured the injured journalist was given immediate and best medical treatment.


"He cut-off his movements to stay throughout the journalist's treatment and subsequent discharge."


According to the statement, preliminary findings carried out by the CP and eyewitness account from other officers revealed that the indicted Inspector attacked the journalist without any previous altercation or confrontation. 



"This propelled the Commissioner of Police to order for his trial in order to serve as deterrent to others who are fond of engaging in unprofessional and unethical conduct," the statement added. 


CP Hakeem Odumosu urged the general public to believe in the command's commitment to sanitizing and reforming the policing system in Lagos State in conformity with the international standards.  


Recall that the Commissioner of Police had earlier apologized to the journalist over the unruly act by the Inspector. 


He had also said that the Force will foot bill for his medical treatment.
