The Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said the state recorded no bank robbery in the last three and a half years due to the efforts of the administration.
Sanwo-Olu made the call during his keynote address at the 16th annual town hall meeting on security organised by the Lagos State Security Trust Fund, held on Victoria Island, Lagos.
He said, “Our efforts have yielded results as Lagos remains largely safe. In the last three and a half years, we have continued to maintain the Lagos record of zero bank robberies in our state.
“Let us be clear that we are not yet where we would like to be, but we are certain we can and will get there. We will not be deterred. Recently, we have been dealing with less conventional crimes such as terrorism and kidnapping.
We will fight with the same determination and urgency that we have deployed towards more conventional crimes.”
In his report, the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command, Abiodun Alabi, disclosed that despite its challenges, the state Command has arrested no fewer than 142 suspects between October 2021 and September 2022. ~ NG News
