The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Edgal Imohimi has pledged that the police command will partner with Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON) to put an end to the theft and infringement of intellectual property in Nigeria.
This pledge was made on Tuesday November 14, 2017 when a delegation led by the COSON Chairman, Chief Tony Okoroji paid a visit to the Commissioner in his Ikeja office.
Receiving the delegation, CP Edgal encouraged COSON to continue in its fight for creators and owners of Intellectual Property, while also noting that the Police will form a partnership with COSON to identify the major copyright infringers within the state and ensure that they no longer have a free reign. He thanked the COSON team for the visit and appreciation of the efforts put up by his men.
While addressing the Commissioner, Chief Okoroji stated that the Board and members of COSON are proud of the security provided by officers and men of the Lagos State Police command all through the eight big events of the just concluded COSON Week.
He noted that the temperament, efficiency and passion displayed by the officers during each event of the COSON Week were top notch.
The COSON Chairman also highlighted the fact that not for once during the week-long event did any Police officer arrive late to the venue, neither was there any report of a breakdown of law and order anywhere, stating that their behaviour was world class.
Accompanying the Chairman on the visit were two other members of the COSON Board, the rub a dub maestro, Ras Kimono and Queen of Love, Azeezat Allen.
