The Lagos State Police Command has issued a response to allegations made by actress Laide Bakare, who accused police officers of harassment and driving off with her 14-year-old daughter alone in her car. The incident was highlighted in a video posted by Bakare on social media, where she is seen confronting officers who stopped her in the rain.

In the video, Bakare questions why she was singled out while other cars were allowed to pass. She expressed outrage over the officers' actions, particularly their decision to drive away with her daughter in the car.

Responding to the allegations, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the spokesperson for the Lagos State Police Command, provided clarification on the incident through a post on X (formerly Twitter). Hundeyin stated that Bakare was stopped for violating traffic laws by driving in a lane designated for BRT buses.

“You were stopped for contravening traffic laws by driving on the BRT lane. You chose to create a scene. You chose to remain out of your vehicle when it was being taken to the LAMATA office. The officers were not going to succumb to your gimmick to hold them down at that spot,” Hundeyin explained.

He further clarified that Bakare was fined N70,000 for the traffic violation and that no physical harm was inflicted on her. “You rightly paid the correct fine for your offence - N70,000 - into government coffers. You left with the receipt and your vehicle. Not a finger was laid on you,” Hundeyin added.

The police's response aims to set the record straight regarding the incident, emphasizing that the actions taken were in accordance with traffic law enforcement procedures and that Bakare's claims of harassment are unfounded.
