…promises operational support to concerned states

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, has ordered an immediate restructuring of the security architecture on the Lagos/Ibadan expressway to provide adequate deployment of officers and assets to ensure the protection of lives and property along the route and forestall kidnappings and other ugly incidents.

The Force Spokesman, Muyiwa Adejobi, explained that the IGP emphasised that the Police Authority were not insensitive to the prevailing security challenges on the Lagos/Ibadan Expressway, but had instead been engaged with charting a path towards decimating the security issue and strategically eliminating the threats along the expressway; hence an on-the-spot assessment of the black spots along the way by the Commissioners of Police, Ogun and Oyo states, on the directives of the IGP for the enhanced safeguard of the expressway.

The IGP pledged adequate operational support in the form of technology-based and tactical operational assets for the Commissioners of Police in charge of Lagos, Ogun, and Oyo, and Heads of tactical functional units in the area to combat the current trend of crimes and criminality on the Lagos/Ibadan Expressway.

“In the same vein, the Inspector-General of Police has therefore called on well-meaning Nigerians, particularly road users, hunters, community leaders, and other stakeholders who ply the route to constantly expose known criminals who terrorize innocent Nigerians along the route and within adjoining communities to the Police and other security agencies for immediate arrest and prosecution,” said Adejobi.
