Lagos – Gov. Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State on Saturday commended Lagosians residing on the Island for their vigilance in the discovery of the strange object that was suspected to be a bomb on Thursday.
Fashola gave the commendation through his Senior Special Adviser on Security, Maj. Babatunde Panox, while inaugurating the Nigeria Police Family Support Unit (FSU) at Adeniji-Adele on Lagos Island.
He said that such alertness was expected from all residents of the state.
Fashola urged the people not to relent in their effort in supporting the police and other security agencies with a view to making the state a safe place for all.
The governor commended Ford Foundation and Justice for All (J4A) for building the facility, stressing that such gesture would help to improve the services of the police.
Mr Monday Agbonika, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of the Central Police Station, Adeniji-Adele, said that the FSU was built to handle domestic violence, sexual offences against minors and other juvenile cases.
According to him, the police in support of Ford Foundation and J4A decided to build such unit in the area because they have high record of such cases in the community.
The DPO said the trained officers and the station would serve as models to other stations nationwide. (NAN)
