As CP Odumosu Felicitates with Muslim Faithfuls
In preparation for the hitch-free Eid-El Kabir celebration, the Lagos State Police Command has restrategized and deployed adequate human and material resources with a view to fortifying security across the state before, during, and after the festive period.
This was contained in a statement with REF NO CZ:5650/LA/PPRO/VOL.3/99 issued and E-Signed by CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi(mnipr) PPRO Lagos State Command Ikeja-Lagos Dated 19th July 2021.
The full text of the statement reads in part.
The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, made the assurance today, Monday 19th July 2021, during a security meeting with the Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers, Heads of Departments, and Special Squads at POWA Hall, Oduduwa, Ikeja.
The Lagos State Police Command, as contained in an Operation Order prepared for the Eid-El Kabir celebration, has put measures in place to manage possible heavy traffic in and out of Lagos State due to increased movement of people for the Sallah celebration and the ongoing massive road rehabilitation in the state.
The Command has also taken into consideration the likelihood of hoodlums who might want to leverage on the heavy traffic in the state and attack motorists in traffic.
The Commissioner of Police has thereby ordered that a large number of surveillance motorcycles, Anti Traffic Robbery teams, and intelligence apparatuses should be deployed to strategic places, especially areas that are vulnerable to attacks, to monitor the traffic and keep hoodlums at bay.
The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, therefore directed the officers and men of the Command to be alive to their duties and ensure the provision of adequate security for lives and property of the good people of Lagos State, especially Muslim faithful and fun-seekers, during the festive period and beyond.
In furtherance of the command’s repeated fights against crimes and criminality in the state, CP Hakeem Odumosu directed the tactics Commanders and Special Squads to embark on continuous and massive raids of identified black spots in their respective areas of responsibility and such raids must be purposeful and credible so as to be in tune with the Standard Operating Procedure of the Nigeria Police Force and the international practices.
The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, while admonishing Muslim faithful, fun seekers, and the good people of Lagos State to celebrate Eid-El Kabir with decorum and moderation, assured the general public of an improved security system in Lagos State.
