Lagos Ember Month Security: police Review Strategy
The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Hakeem Odumosu, has directed all field and Tactical Commanders to beef up security in their areas during this ’ember months’ period and even beyond.
Mr. Odumosu gave this directive at a routine briefing with field Commanders/tactical Commanders and Heads of Departments at Ikeja.
Against the backdrop of activities of hoodlums during heavy traffic, the police boss charged DPOs and Area Commanders to provide adequate security at road construction sites in their areas to curtail traffic robbery and control gridlock in affected areas in the state.
This proactive step, he said, would make the roads secure, safe and more comfortable for motorists and other road users.
Commending officers and men for their selfless service in the face of daunting challenges that daily confront them in the line of duty, the Commissioner of Police admonished them not to be discouraged by the death of CSP Kazeem Sunmonu Abonde who was brutally killed during a raid on criminal hideouts in Ajao Estate on 23rd September, 2021.
He assured that the deceased officer would not die in vain.
