To ask the Mayor whether any police officer has been disciplined or received ‘words of advice’ in consequence of the arrest of Christian street preacher Oluwole Ilesanmi outside Southgate Underground Station on 23 February 2019?
Following the arrest of Mr Oluwole Ilesanmi, two officers were investigated by the local Professional Standards Unit to determine if they had breached the code of conduct. The investigation found that the arrest was lawful. Officer A admitted to having made a mistake in aspects of the administration of the arrest and was issued Management Action. Officer B admitted to misconduct in having made inappropriate comments to Mr Ilesanmi. Following a misconduct meeting and subsequent mitigation, no further action was taken.
