The Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of Zone 2, Onikan Lagos, AIG Ahmed Iliyasu, has assured residents in both Lagos and Ogun States of tranquillity, as DPOs, Area Commanders, tactical Commanders and Commissioners of Police in both States are working assiduously to beef up security in the areas.
Speaking with journalists in Ota, AIG Iliyasu warned that hoodlums caught terrorising residents would face the wrath of law, saying, there is no place for criminals to hibernate within the Zone.
While noting that, Covid-19 is real and has caused unrest globally, he explained that, ‘’the position of governments on lockdown is to detect hidden cases of this pandemic and proffer solution that will get rid of this virus, as fighting unknown enemy is enough than causing unrest through criminals in our area’’.
“We are assuring all our people in Lagos and Ogun State, based on the security architecture, new sets of tactical fusion forces have been deployed. There is patrol, quick response, we have sent out all the numbers of Operatives in the Command, the DPOs, Area Commanders. I am assuring all the people to go back and disregard some of the rumours spreading around and sleep with their two eyes closed because our Officers are fully on ground”, Iliyasu added.
Iliyasu enjoined the residents to be vigilant at all times and report any suspicious individual in their areas to the Police, adding that governments had put machineries in place to foresee any criminality.
