The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has assured the people of Lagos State of improved and sustainable synergy among security agencies for better policing of the state.
Odumosu gave the assurance Friday, 15 January, 2021 at the 2021 Armed Forces Remembrance Day celebration that was held at Tafawa Balewa Square, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The Commissioner of Police, amongst other security chiefs in the state, assisted the Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwoolu, in performing the remembrance rites and laying of wreath accordingly. Others in attendance were: the state Deputy Governor, Dr Kadri Obafemi Hamzat; the Secretary to the State Government, Mrs Folashade Jaji; top government functionaries, the state Chairman of the Nigerian Legion, Col S Akande (retd) and senior officers from the armed forces and the police.
The police boss, who doubles as the Chairman of the Lagos State Security Council, seized the opportunity to pay tributes to the fallen heroes admonishing officers and men on the field, defending the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Nigeria, to remain focused and patriotic as the present security challenges in the country are not insurmountable.
The Lagos police boss also appealed to Lagosians to always pray for security operatives, be law-abiding and embrace community-based policing as a civic responsibility.
