A legal practitioner and public analyst, Mutiu Agboke, has advised alcohol vendors to not sell to police officers on duty.
Speaking as a guest lecturer at a seminar on Effective policing of Ogun State: the role of liquor sellers, organised by the state Police command on Wednesday, Mr. Agboke urged liquor sellers to henceforth decline to sell to police officers.
He said refusing to sell to police officers will ensure effective policing.
“Aside from the dangers that may result from policemen drinking liquor, it is also an act of violation of law to sell liquor to policemen.
”All of us must participate in effective policing in the state. Anything that can compromise security of property, we should all shun it,” the guest lecturer said.
But some of the liquor sellers say the police force them to sell. The liquor sellers say the police threaten them with arrests if they refuse to sell.
