There seems to be no end in sight in the destructive and nefarious activities of members of the Community Policing Youth Vanguard set up by the Area ‘E’ Police Commander, ACP Dan Okoro.
The group was recently outlawed by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Kayode Aderanti; and the Lagos State House of Assembly.
The leader of the outlawed group, Emmanuel Uba, aka Onwa, Ayuba Okeshola, Niyi and his cohorts were seen at the All progressives Congress (APC), Amuwo Odofin Local Government periodic meeting at 11 Road, 1st Avenue, FESTAC Town, Lagos, on 5th November, 2014.
Party leaders and members, including member representing Amuwo Odofin Constituency 1 in the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Sultan Adeniji-Adele were all in attendance.
In the course of the meeting, members of the outlawed group were seen destroying the security patrol Hilux of the former Chairman of Amuwo Odofin Local Government, Comrade Ayodele Adewale, while also brandishing charms and other dangerous weapons at the meeting.
Comrade Adewale while recounting his ordeal with Journalists noted that “the attack was led by one Ayuba Okeshola and Niyi with 50 other members of the outlawed group at about 6pm. The security patrol vehicle attached to me was totally destroyed and my driver almost killed, who is now under life support at an undisclosed hospital. I narrowly escaped being killed”.
The former local government boss used this medium to call for thorough investigation by the Lagos State Government, Commissioner of Police and other security agencies on the issue.
It would be recalled that the same group attacked the Amuwo Odofin local government headquarters a few months ago.
