The Lagos State Police Command has stated that only the courts could decide the fate of the two dogs, which attacked and ate off the scalp on a four year old boy, Omonigho Abraham’s head in Akesan Estate, Igando area of Lagos State, earlier this month.
The command, which paraded the two dogs at its headquarters in Ikeja, Lagos State on Tuesday, added that the dogs had been medially examined and found to be rabies and Ebola-free.
The State Commissioner of Police, Cornelius Aderanti, said it was important to parade the dogs so as to dismiss insinuations that they had been released to the owner.
He said, “We have brought the dogs out so that the public would know that they are still in police custody. They have been examined and show no negative trait. It is only the court that will decide what happens to them. The police cannot decide to kill the dogs”.
A police veterinary officer, Yahaya Usman, also told journalists at the headquarters that the medical record showed the dogs had neither rabies nor other dog-related diseases.
He said, “So far, they have not shown any negative trait. The medical history shows that they don’t have rabies or the Ebola Virus Disease. The dogs are with us, and only the court will determine what happens to the dogs”.
