The Commissioner of Police in Lagos state, Mr Abiodun Alabi, has vowed to deal decisively with any person or group of persons found disturbing the peace of the state.
This is contained in a statement issued on Monday by the command’s spokesman, SP Benjamin Hundeyin.
Alabi said that the warning became imperative following the attack on police officers, who dispersed an unlawful gathering in the early hours of Monday at the Ojota area of the state.
He said that the Command was not averse to peoples’ right to freedom of assembly, association and expression.
Alabi, however, said that the Command would equally live up to its mandate of ensuring that no person or group of persons was allowed to infringe on the fundamental human rights of others.
The police boss called on parents, guardians, opinion/religious/community/political/traditional leaders to warn their children/wards/constituents/followers to desist from all forms of unlawful actions.
Alabi warned that the Command would not tolerate the slightest form of attack on its personnel or the residents of Lagos State.
He enjoined all peace-loving Lagosians to go about their lawful duties without fear of harassment or intimidation.
