•As CP creates special squads for traffic robbery
Lagos State Police Command has said that it has no knowledge of any planned protest in the state to commemorate the 2021 Democracy Day on Saturday, June 12.
The state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, who stated this on Friday, June 11, advised members of the public to disregard any sit-at-home order called by certain groups which is being circulated in the social media.
The police image-maker in the state, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, in a statement on behalf of the police commissioner, said Odumosu also urged them to go about their lawful businesses, as the police and other security agencies had made necessary arrangements to maintain law and order across the state.
In another development, the Commissioner of Police has created special squads to go after traffic robbers who had been terrorising innocent Lagos residents and get the state rid of such miscreants.
The police boss formed the squads on Friday at the command headquarters.
Odumosu also released some crime-fighting equipment and modern communication gadgets to the squads for efficiency and better service delivery, as he said that some of the identified areas such as Eko Bridge, Apongbon, Cele, Ijora, Ojota/7up, Mike 12, Surulere etc, must be cleared of miscreants and traffic robbers with immediate effect.
Assuring the general public of adequate security of lives and property in the state, the Commissioner of Police reiterated that police personnel in the command would religiously discharge their duties within the ambit of the law.
