Bill stopping suspects parade pass by Lagos state house of assembly

The Lagos House of Assembly has passed an amended version of the Criminal Justice Law of the State barring the police from parading suspects before the media

Section 9 (A) of the bill, which was passed after a voice vote at a sitting presided over by the Deputy Speaker, Wasiu Eshilokun-Sanni, states that the police must from the commencement of the law refrain from parading any suspect before the media.
The bill, which also stipulates conditions under which the police can arrest without warrant, states that a person must be reasonably suspected to unlawfully be in possession of firearms or other such dangerous instruments.

The deputy speaker on behalf of the Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, directed the acting Clerk of the House, Mr. Olalekan Onafeko, to convey the bill to the governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for his assent.
