Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso has reassured Lagosians that there is no need to panic over the recent reports of security threats in some States, including Lagos.
Omotoso spoke today on “Lagos In Focus”, a Jordan FM programme in which he cleared the air on the threats and outlined the State’s plans to ensure the safety of citizens.
His words: “First, let me just reassure Lagosians that there is no need to panic. It’s true that intelligence has been put out there and people have seen it, but I tell Lagosians that there’s nothing to panic about. Mr. Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has held a meeting with all security agencies and they are all at the alert”.
“The meeting, which was held a week ago, had all members of the Lagos State Security Council comprising the Navy, Army, Air Force, Police, Immigration, Neighbourhood Watch, Road Safety and others in attendance.”
Omotoso said the reports generated at the “expanded” security meeting prompted the Governor to personally reassure Lagosians that there was no need for anxiety as his administration was supporting security agencies with resources to aid effective and efficient operations.
