– warn subversive elements to steer clear or face the wrath of the law
– assure of adequate security emplacements for the inauguration ceremony
The Lagos State Police Command said it has arrested two members of the Yoruba Nation’s agitators in the state today 28th May 2023 after the agitators stormed the Alausa Secretariat, Ikeja, injuring two policemen.
The State Police spokesman, Benjamin Hundeyin said that the agitators’ number 15, had stormed Alausa Police Division at about 05:35hrs today, chanting, ‘The Yoruba Nation has taken over,’ and injured some police officers who attempted to disperse them.
Hundeyin said that two of the agitators were arrested while the rest took to their heels following the prompt and coordinated response of the police.
Hundeyin said: “The suspects who were arrested with charms, dangerous weapons, and different offensive insignias bearing Yoruba Nation Army, stormed Alausa Division along with others at about the same time another set of the group was attempting to take over a radio station in Ibadan, Oyo State. They claimed they came to officially inform the Police that the United Nations had granted approval for the take-off of the Yoruba Nation.
“The arrested suspects are currently assisting the Police in the ongoing investigation into the subversive plans of the group as well as their network of sponsors, all of whom will soon be unveiled and brought to deserved justice in the overriding internal security interest of the State.”
The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command, CP Idowu Owohunwa, use this medium to warn all subversive elements to steer clear of the state as the Command is fully ready and has the strong will and operational orientation to bring the full weight of the law to bear on them or on any other elements that might attempt to disrupt the stable security order in Lagos.
The CP noted that the Command while working in synergy with other security agencies, has maximally deployed its intelligence, human and operational assets across the length and breadth of the state to effectively suppress any ill-advised person or groups under any nomenclature who might be attempting to test the law enforcement will of the Command before, during and after the May 29, 2023 inauguration.
Owohunwa equally appreciated the good people of Lagos State for their unrelenting cooperation with the police and urges them to continue to manifest their patriotism by promptly reaching out to the police or the nearest security agency whenever the need arises.
