Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has honoured Sunday Erhabor, AK-47 wielding Policeman who was assaulted by a civilian according to a statement on the official website of the Lagos State Government
The Governor praised Erhabor for his display of professionalism and self control despite having his AK-47 rifle with him.

In the video, Erhabor remained comported, and exercised restraint despite holding his AK-47 rifle.
Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu on Monday, presented Erhabor to the governor at the State House where he was honoured for his professionalism in the face of provocation.
“...Erhabor’s demeanor shows there are still commendable police officers...'' Sanwo-Olu said whilst commending the cop who could have taken the law into his hands but exuded a calm demeanor when provoked.
Babajide Sanwo-Olu stressed that the gesture was commendable and urge other police officers to emulate the patience and decorum shown by Sunday Erhabor.
