As part of concerted, and deliberate efforts to sustain existing peace and tranquility enjoyed in Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, with his Management Team, Area Commanders, DPOs, HODs and other tactical commanders, met at a strategic meeting on Monday August 9th, to review security situation in the State.
In a statement signed by the Lagos state Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu (MNIPR), it was said that, while addressing the officers, the CP charged men of the force “to always carry out diligent investigation and prosecution of criminal cases, and be more proactive by constantly carrying out intelligence-driven and aggressive raid of identified black spots with a view to smoking out criminal elements from their hideouts.
Odumosun appreciated the officers “for their untiring commitment towards maintaining law and order” while also reiterating his commitment to providing robust security for the good people of Lagos State.
Although, it is the Commissioner’s opinion that, ‘crime had reduced drastically in the state’, but he stated that there is the need for officers and men of the police force to continue to be ahead of criminals, and other hoodlums who often make lives unbearable for law abiding citizens in the state.
CP Hakeem Odumosun, as a way to further strengthen security in hot spots within the state, areas such as: Ile Zik, Opebi, Monkey Bridge, Odo Iya Alaro and other red zones, he directed the creation of additional pin down points to help sustain the fight against miscreants lurking in the areas.
The Commissioner however, frowned at the reckless attitude with which motorists and motorcyclists persistently violate traffic rules and regulations in Lagos State; and vowed to instill discipline by arresting offenders in special and continuous operations that would commence in earnest on Wednesday August, 11th 2021.
He therefore, used the opportunity at his disposal to speak for the police command warning traffic violators irrespective of their personality, to desist from their unbridled penchant for breaking traffic laws in any part of the State.
