THE Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, today 22nd April, 2021, played host to the new Commander, Nigerian Air Force 651 Base Services Group, Ikeja, Air Commodore AK Ademuwagun in his office, in Ikeja.
The new Air Force Commnader who was on a courtesy visit and familiarisation tour to the Police Command Headquarters, commended the Commissioner for his openness, commitment to duty and sterling leadership qualities exhibited in sustaining the existing synergy between the Police and other security services in Lagos State.
The commissioner appreciated the Commodore for his hand of fellowship and the zeal to collaborate with the Police in combating crimes in the state.
He also promised to set machineries in motion to boost cordial relationship among the members of the rank and file of the police and other security services in Lagos State.
In the same vein, the Commissioner of Police addressed the traffic officers in all the Area Commands and Divisional Police Stations, across the state to review and restrategise on the templates adopted to manage traffic in the state.
He emphasised the need to sustain the deployment of traffic personnel at the peak of traffic in the state as regular presence and control will ease the traffic problems. Odumosu further charged them to deploy their motorcycle monitors to be on Surveillance at strategic places in order to keep traffic robbers at bay.
The Commissioner therefore directed the Area Commanders, DPOs and Officers in charge of the Command’s Motor and Traffic Division, CSP Oriyomi Oluwasanmi to adequately supervise the activities and operations of the traffic personnel in their areas of responsibility so as to be alive to their duties; urging them to shun extortion and corruption in all forms, as such professional misconducts will not be condoned by the command.
