Ember months: Police heighten security in Lagos


The Lagos Police Command has heightened security across the state, including nooks and crannies.

On Monday, Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu directed all field commanders to beef up security in their areas.

The order is part of moves to secure Lagos during the ’ember months’ period and beyond.

Odumosu briefed Commanders, Tactical Commanders and Heads of Departments at the POWA Hall in Ikeja.

On hoodlums’ nefarious activities in traffic, the CP charged them to provide adequate security on roads to curtail robbery and control gridlock.

“This proactive step will make our roads secure, safe and more comfortable for motorists and other road users”, Odumosu said.

The commissioner hailed officers for their commitment to serve and courage displayed in the line of duty.


On the murder of CSP Kazeem Sunmonu Abonde in Ajao Estate during an attack by okada riders, the CP assured that efforts are on to ensure he did not die in vain.
