Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, has met with two factional transport union leaders in the state.
In a statement titled ‘NURTW Imbroglio: CP Alabi Reads Riot Act To Mischief Makers’, the command spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin, said the commissioner met with Musiliu ‘Mc Oluomo’ Akinsanya who was the chairman of the Lagos NURTW before he was sacked, and Mr Azeez Abiola who is the state Chairman of the Tricycle Owners and Operators Association of Nigeria (TOOAN).
The police commissioner said anyone found fomenting trouble anywhere within Lagos State would be promptly apprehended and made to face the law.
The statement read;
“This warning has become imperative following incessant clashes, fracas and malicious damage to property recently experienced in some parts of Lagos State mostly linked to the issues surrounding the management of motor parks within the state.
“CP Alabi, who has met with the major contenders – Musiliu Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo and Azeez Abiola aka Istijaba separately in his office, where he admonished them to prevail on their teeming followers to act within the confines of the law, is poised to ensure the security currently being enjoyed in Lagos State remains intact.”
Mr Hundeyin said all Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers (DPOs) and tactical commanders have been directed to “deal decisively with anyone found instigating or causing a breach of peace within their respective areas of responsibility (AoR).”
