”While the agency’s bikers have been dispatched for close monitoring and surveillance of the situation for necessary attention when required with the agency further looking at other avenues for periodic situation report in management of any situation in the area.”
Tiamiyu assured that the Lagos State government is alive to its responsibilities in ensuring adequate safety of lives and properties and will not allow any unfortunate incident to occur as a result of the bottleneck.
