Lagos Govt Assures Residents Of Safety

Lagos State government has restated its commitment to the safety and security of its residents, saying the recent apprehension of 40 suspected hoodlums around the newly constructed Yaba Overpass Bridge in Ebute Metta area of the state was a demonstration of its commitment.

The commissioner for Transportation, Mr Oluwaseun Osiyemi said the arrest serves as a stern warning, pointing out that criminal activities targeting Lagosians, particularly in critical transport areas, would not be tolerated.

He urged residents to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities promptly to the relevant authorities or through the Ministry of Transportation hotlines.

The commissioner stressed that the state government will continue to implement strategic measures to combat criminal activities and uphold public safety.
