The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, (CP) Abiodun Alabi, has warned that anyone found fomenting trouble within the State would be promptly apprehended and made to face the law.
Alabi’s warning is contained in a statement issued by the Command’s spokesman, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, Monday in Lagos.
“This 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” the statement said.
Hundeyin indicated that the CP, who had met with the two major contenders of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), urged them to prevail on their followers to act within the confines of the law.
“CP Alabi has met with 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, and 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.
“The CP called 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” the statement said.
