The Lagos State Government has assured members of the public of the safety of lives and property around Mafoluku, Sogunle, Sadiku, Ladipo and the entire Oshodi area of the State.
The Chairman of the Lagos State Task Force, SP Olayinka Egbeyemi, stated that activities of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) and Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) across the entire Oshodi area are under check by officials of the Task Force and other security agencies who are strategically positioned to maintain law and order.
Egbeyemi disclosed further that different warring factional leaders of the NURTW and RTEAN trying to foment trouble around Mafoluku, Sogunle, Sadiku, Ladipo and Oshodi with their supporters have been arrested and are at present with the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fatai Owoseni for interrogation.
He enjoined members of the public to ignore misinformation about ‘Bomb Explosion’ and ‘Security Alert’ around Sogunle and Oshodi trending on various social media thereby creating unnecessary fear amongst traders and residents of the area.
He warned miscreants and hoodlums to desist from causing chaos around Oshodi and other parts of the State as anyone arrested would be dealt with according to the law.
While commending Governor Akinwunmi Ambode for providing security agencies across the State with modern equipment, however, called on members of the public to report promptly unlawful activities of miscreants and hoodlums to appropriate security agencies through ‘112’ and ‘767’ which are toll-free lines.
