*Odumosu Raids Black Spots, Goes Tough On Illegal Use Of Siren, Spy Number Plates*
NewsReport 30, 2021
The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, has vowed to sniff criminals out of their hideouts within Lagos State as he ordered Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers and tactical Commanders to embark on massive raids of criminals at their identified blackspots across the state.
This decision to descend on criminals is contained in a statement signed by CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the Command’s spokesman and made available to NAOSRE.
In the statement, Adejobi said the Commissioner made the declaration on Monday, June 18, while addressing senior officers, Divisional Police Officers and Heads of Departments at the POWA Hall, Oduduwa Ikeja-Lagos, on the general security of the state and the need to be proactive rather than being reactive to security issues in Lagos State.
According to Adejobi, the Police boss empathised on the benefits and fundamentals of raids and constant monitoring of human conducts within their respective areas of responsibility to take charge of public space and provide adequate security for all and sundry in Lagos State.
In addition, Odumosu ordered the Area Commanders and Divisional Police Officers to henceforth enforce the orders on the use of tint permits, siren and Police SPY Number plates as reiterated by the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba.
The essence, he stated, is to reduce crimes to the barest minimum in the state.
He reiterated that existing tint permits remain valid while only new vehicles with factory-fitted tints are exempted and vehicles with other forms of tints, other than the factory fitted, be impounded while the owners are apprehended and charged to court accordingly.
Equally, the police boss ordered the officers in the command to enforce the orders on the use of siren and police SPY Number plates as unauthorised individuals must be arrested and their vehicles impounded for prosecution.
He clarified that approved police SPY number plates must be fixed and used on registered trucks-Pick ups, not on private SUVs or cars.
The Commissioner restated that anyone who violates this order and does not enjoy constitutional immunity will be arrested and prosecuted by the relevant laws.
Odumosu however appealed to the general public to be obedient and law-abiding as the command intends to exploit all constitutional means to curb crimes and criminality in the state.
He, therefore, warned officers and men of the command to carry out their duties diligently and devoid of corruption and extortion as any professional misconduct will be meted with severe disciplinary sanction.
