Insecurity: Lagos CP holds meeting with area commanders


The Lagos state commissioner of police, Abiodun Alabi, has held a security meeting with all of the state’s Area, Squadron, and Tactical Commanders.

This was announced via a tweet on Monday by Benjamin Hundeyin, the public relations officer for the Lagos State Police Command.

Hundeyin shared pictures from the meeting and stated that the police’s top priority continues to be the protection and safety of the people of Lagos State.

Additionally, he advised Lagos residents to be watchful and alert security organizations to any unusual behavior.

Hundeyin tweeted, “ONGOING: CP Abiodun Alabi, fdc meeting with all Area, Squadron and Tactical Commanders in Lagos State. The security and safety of all residents of Lagos State remain a top priority.

“We call on Lagosians to remain vigilant and report anything suspicious to security agencies.”

Following allegations that the state is on the radar of some people planning attacks across the nation, Alabi had on Sunday reassured Lagos residents of appropriate security.

He said, “The command is also working closely with sister security agencies to ensure that no person or group of persons succeeds in destabilising the peace and serenity enjoyed by the good people of Lagos State.

“I want to use this medium to allay the fears of Lagosians and assure them that all human, material, and operational resources have been fully and optimally deployed across the length and breadth of the state, especially at border towns, towards ensuring there is absolutely no breach of the peace.”

During a Twitter Space webinar on Saturday, Hundeyin responded to questions regarding reports of a potential terrorist assault planned for Lagos and the police’s level of readiness, noting that the police were also receiving intelligence reports.

The PPRO had said, “We are working seriously with other security agencies. Many times that I am with the Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, the Department of State Services keeps sending intelligence reports to us.”
