New Lagos CP vows to address gang disturbances
Abiodun Alabi, the new commissioner of police in Lagos state, says he will tackle gang disturbances in the state.
Alabi takes over from Hakeem Odumosu. The Police Service Commission (PSC) recently elevated odumosu to the rank of assistant inspector-general of police (AIG).
“Issues of gang disturbance or wars will be holistically addressed and those intransigent persons will face consequences of their actions,” said Alabi at a press conference on Monday.
“Our men’s conduct while discharging their duties must be in conformity with our professional ethics especially with issues of corruption and extra-judicial killing and acts of incivility to members of the public,” he said.
“We will strive to build confidence and trust in members of the public particularly with state actors and non-state actors through intelligence led community policing.
“I will not be allergic to constructive criticism but will see it as an information to rejig our security architecture for our policing strategy.
“Therefore, I will encourage collaboration with the fourth estate of the realm and appeal that issues concerning our policing policies in the state are brought to my knowledge promptly.
“I will also endeavour to hold parleys with journalists where solutions will be tabled and addressed in an amicable manner
The trends and patterns of crime will continually be monitored to ensure crime mapping of the state to enable us devise appropriate crime prevention strategies.
“Issues of gang disturbance or wars will be holistically addressed and those intransigent persons will face consequences of their actions
“I will strengthen interagency collaboration and synergy with a robust and healthy relationship with heads of security agencies in Lagos state.
