Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso has reassured Lagos residents that there is no need to panic over the recent reports of security threats in some States, including Lagos.

Omotoso disclosed 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 is true that intelligence has been put out there and people have seen it.
The Governor, Mr 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.

“Our administration is spending a lot of money to motivate security agencies in terms of giving them equipment. The private sector has also been doing a lot, walking closely with the government to ensure that security agencies have all the support they need to do their job very well.

“So, I do not think Lagosians should panic at all because of this information, they should go about their businesses without any fear that anything could happen to them,” he said.
