Election results announcement: Police urge Lagos residents not to panic

Fashola and wife queue for accreditationThe Lagos State Police Command on Tuesday urged the people of the state not to entertain any fear as all parts of the state were under its surveillance. The Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the command, DSP Kenneth Nwosu, advised the residents to go about their normal businesses peacefully without panic.

Nwosu made the call in an interview with newsmen in Lagos. He was reacting to reports that the residents were apprehensive of what the outcome of Saturday’s elections may cause in view of declining presence of police in some areas of the state.

“We have deployed our personnel to those areas that we anticipated chaos, and now that we have finished the election, the deployment will definitely will change.  “There is nowhere in the world where deployment remains constant, we keep on reviewing for the better.   “So, people should not entertain any fears. We cover every part of Lagos through surveillance and patrol,” the PPRO said.
