NURTW Fracas: Police Reads Riot Acts To Mischief Makers In Lagos
Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi, has read the riot acts to those who are behind the recent clashes in Lagos, warning that they will be severely punished if caught by the hands of law.
CP Alabi further warned that anyone person found fomenting trouble anywhere within Lagos State would be promptly apprehended and made to face the law.
He made this disclosure in a statement signed by the Command’s Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin.
He added that the warning has become imperative following incessant clashes, fracas and malicious damage to property recently experienced in some parts of Lagos State mostly linked to the issues surrounding the management of motor parks within the state.
“CP Alabi, who has met with the major contenders – Musiliu Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo and Azeez Abiola aka Istijaba – separately in his office, where he admonished them to prevail on their teeming followers to act within the confines of the law, is poised to ensure the security currently being enjoyed in Lagos State remains intact.
“In line with this stance, all Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers (DPOs) and tactical commanders have been directed to deal decisively with anyone found instigating or causing a breach of peace within their respective areas of responsibility (AoR).”
Meanwhile, CP Abiodun Alabi has also called on Lagosians to go about their lawful duties without fear of harassment or intimidation, as all human, material and operational resources have been optimally deployed to ensure their safety and security.
