FOLLOWING the recent clashes in some parts of Lagos, Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi has said henceforth, violators will be dealt with.
The CP said that anyone found fomenting trouble anywhere within the State would be promptly apprehended and made to face the law.
This was contained in a statement on Monday, signed by SP Benjamin Hundeyin, Spokesperson of the Command who said the warning has become imperative following incessant clashes, fracas and malicious damage to property recently experienced in some parts of Lagos State mostly linked to the issues surrounding the management of motor parks within the state.
According to him, CP Alabi, who has met with the major contenders – Musiliu Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo and Azeez Abiola aka Istijaba – separately in his office, where he admonished them to prevail on their teeming followers to act within the confines of the law, is poised to ensure the security currently being enjoyed in Lagos State remains intact.
“In line with this stance, all Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers (DPOs) and tactical commanders have been directed to deal decisively with anyone found instigating or causing a breach of peace within their respective areas of responsibility (AoR),”
Meanwhile, CP Abiodun Alabi calls on Lagosians to go about their lawful duties without fear of harassment or intimidation, as all human, material and operational resources have been optimally deployed to ensure their safety and security.
