The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, has ordered the arrest of people involved in the distribution of petrol as a souvenir at a party in the state.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, confirmed the development in a statement on Saturday.
The statement read, “The attention of the Lagos State Police Command has been drawn to a video going viral in social media in which some individuals and organizers of an event were seen giving out some kegs containing PMS (petrol) as souvenirs.
“It’s regrettable that in spite of a series of warnings and sensitizations carried out by the police and other relevant government agencies, some individuals could be handling such combustible substances in a public place in total disregard to the safety of lives and properties. (Punch)
