Lagos State partners the Gambia on community policing


The Lagos State Neighbourhood Safety Agency (LNSA) has said it is set for an International Exchange programme on Community Policing with the Gambia.

This was disclosed by Prince (Dr.) Ifalade Oyekan, FISN, the General manager of LNSA after meeting with a delegation from the Gambia led by a Security Consultant and son of the former President of the country, Mr Omar Jawara at the Headquarters of the Agency at Bolade, Oshodi.

Oyekan said that the visit is a sign that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu is doing something unique and commendable in Lagos State.

He said, “This is why our brothers across borders are here to exchange ideas with us. I can assure you that Mr Governor will graciously do anything to make Lagos the cynosure of all eyes by providing a safe environment for residents and a conducive atmosphere for business and leisure”.

According to the General Manager, the exchange programme will benefit both entities as they share experiences while assuring Lagosians of the Governor’s commitment to a safer and more secure Lagos State.

In his remark, Mr Jawara expressed delight in the Agency’s pioneer work in Community Policing in Africa and commended Governor Sanwo- Olu’s effort in making Lagos safer and more secure.

He said, the Gambia has a lot in common with Nigeria and is interested in establishing a symbiotic relationship with the State to tap into the affinity to make the country more prosperous.

“Nigeria and Gambia will be the better for it if we collaborate,” he said.
