How Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu plans to tackle robbery cases in Lagos
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos state says all hands are now on the deck as his government has received extensive support from the inspector general of police, Mohammad Adamu, to “address the increase in armed robberies and unrest in boundary communities.”
Today, the state security council met to address the increase in armed robberies and unrest in boundary communities. We have received increased help from the IG of Police with a special force already addressing the elements breaching the peace in the affected communities.
We have the responsibility of ensuring the security of the lives and properties of all residents in Lagos. We will not abandon this responsibility at any time. We will definitely see an increase in mobile police deployment in all trouble spots across the metropolis.
Our security agencies will intensify their patrols around residential areas, boundary communities and other critical areas of activity during this lockdown period. I urge all residents to cooperate with them and thank you for your resilience during this extraordinary time.
