The entire members and executive management board of CMC Gladiators global award winning group wish to express our salutation, appreciation and gratitude to AIG Ahmed Iliyasu for his concerted effort and endeavors in maintaining the stability and order of Lagos State, especially during this quarantine/lockdown period. You have shown to the world the highest degree of professionalism, good leadership, discipline, transparency, and bravery in executing your duties.
Earlier this month, a video showing a group of police officers destroying cartons of beer bottles as an act of enforcing restrictions of movement over Covid-19 went viral in Lagos. The video was immediately sent to AIG. Ahmed Iliyasu by the president and founder of CMC Gladiators. He reported the incident and AIG immediately ordered the arrest and trial of all the police officers involved in that shameful and unprofessional act.
As Gladiators of repute and integrity, we strongly condemn the actions of these police officers. We consider their unprofessional action as an affront and as unbecoming of police officers in our community.
We encourage the Police to continue to do their best in maintaining the law and order in Lagos State. We are ever ready to support the Police, especially the frontline officers.
Thank you very much for everything you are doing to uphold the rule of law in Lagos State. Please continue to serve with pride and dignity in these very difficult times.
