In as much as the command keeps on receiving complaints against such criminal acts, the police will go after anyone culpable and his or her accomplices, either for conspiracy or receiving stolen items or accessory after the fact accordingly.

The police boss reiterated and reminded them that criminal cases have no statute of limitations and such cases could still be brought up against anyone involved years after the offense has been committed.

 

While he assured Lagosian that the policemen in the state have braced up to continue discharging their duties undistracted and professionally, despite the recent challenges we experienced.

Furthermore, the Commissioner of Police seized the Opportunity to appreciate community leaders and various groups for their support to surmount the crises and encouraged them to continue in the same spirit to promote community policing which remains the major pillar for public safety and security.
