The Lagos State Police Commissioner, Hakeem Odumosu, has said that the state is on alert over threats by the Indigenous People Of Biafra, the Oodua People’s Republic and 22 other groups to attack soft spots in the state.
The Police boss disclosed this on Monday, at a stakeholders meeting organised by the Lagos state government at the state secretariat Alausa.
He said, “The Command has taken notice of agitators for Oodua Republic by some Yoruba separatist groups and the threats to disrupt law and order in the state. 24 of these groups have been identified and being closely monitored.
“Similarly, the threat of IPOB to attack soft targets in Lagos is equally being put on the radar of the command intelligence gathering and other security services in the state. Strategies are being put in place to neutralise their activities.
He, however appealed to the public to be vigilant and report suspicious movements within their environments.
“The Command is using this medium to solicit for the support of all and sundry to be vigilant at all times and report any suspicious person or movement to security agencies.Let us adopt the slogan of “when you see something, say something.”
