By Evelyn Usman & Peter Ofili

Lagos—THE Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Mr. Fatai Owoseni has assured that adequate security has been put in place to ensure a peaceful celebration of Eid-el- Kabir in the state.

To this effect, over 200 policemen and 100 patrol vans were deployed with a warning to criminals to stay away from the state during the celebration.

The exercise, which was done in collaboration with the Internal Security Operational platform, OP MESA, witnessed intensified patrol round the 14 area commands, especially crime-prone areas.

Owoseni explained that the exercise was aimed at assuring Lagosians that the command was on top of its responsibility of ensuring that they slept with their two eyes closed.

He advised members of the public to go about their legitimate businesses without fear and also urged them to avail the police with prompt and necessary information that would assist apprehending criminals.

Owoseni further admonished Lagosians, particularly landlords   to be security conscious by reporting strange faces within their communities to the appropriate quarters in order to prevent militants who were dislodged from the creeks from hibernating within their communities.
