Suspected Militants : Ambode Set To Shut Down Lagos


Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos state, yesterday, promised to ‘shut down’ some locations where suspected militants operate within the state.

The governor stated this during a visit by Acting Inspector General of Police, Mr. Idris Kpotun Ibrahim, at Lagos House, Ikeja

He said: “Again, we need to ensure that these criminals do not go back to the creeks. On our part as a government, whatever it is that it takes to take the militants and vandals off Lagos we are going to do it.

“If it means shutting down some locations where they seem to be hibernating in terms of any commercial trade, we would do it and make sure we guarantee the lives of our people and whatever it will take in terms of financial support for the security agencies to sustain the success we’ve had in the last few days, we would do it,”
 Ambode also applauded a joint onslaught by the Nigeria Army, the Police and other security agencies which was carried out in some communities within the boundary of Lagos and Ogun states against militants and oil thieves.

Governor Ambode said: “I want to also use this medium to commend the Nigeria Police and other security agencies on our fight against the militants and vandals that we have embarked on in this Operation Awathe in the last one week.
“I want to commend all the security agencies for a job well done, I also want to thank President Muhammadu Buhari for approving that operation. I also commend the Chief of Defence Staff for also approving the joint effort. We are already seeing the results. I have just been briefed this morning about the impact of what has been done.”
