Security: Expect improvement, Owoseni tells Lagosians

The Lagos State Government on Tuesday assured residents of the State that it was working hard to consolidate on the gains recorded over the past few months in reducing crime to the barest minimum, just as it reiterated its commitment to always uphold security of lives and property.

State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fatai Owoseni also said the Council considered and agreed to build on the momentum of successes recorded so far with the view to safeguarding lives and property, as well as maintain a safer environment for investment.

He said the tripod upon which the State Government built its policy thrust is security, and that Lagos State government has once again looked at what is happening security wise.

“Looking at that, we have considered and agreed that there is need to build on the momentum and further improve on what we are doing in order to keep Lagos State safer and more secured in order to attract investments which will also translate into giving employment to people in Lagos,” Owoseni said.

Owoseni, who briefed journalists alongside service chiefs and top government functionaries, also highlighted the positive impacts which the ‘Light Up Lagos’ Project, an initiative of Governor Ambode’s administration, has had on the security architecture in the State.

He said: “It is one of those key things with which we can prevent crime. Apart from the aesthetical value that you gain in it by making everywhere beautiful, you are also preventing crime when the places are lit up at night.

“It helps in prevention of crime and detection as well. You can see the criminals that we are pursuing, if the criminals have dropped anything which if the places are dark, you will not be able to see them, but that story has changed. So, it is a big plus for security.

“I just want to appeal to Lagosians to be law abiding and expect improvement on all what the security agencies have been doing to keep Lagos safer and more secured,” the Lagos CP said.
