CP Owohunwa Reads Riot Act To Mischief Makers

…vows to sustain security

The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Police Command, CP Idowu Owohunwa, has warned mischief makers to desist from fomenting trouble as anyone found wanting would be severely dealt with in accordance with the law.

He gave the charge on Friday morning, 17th February, 2023, after visiting Mile 12 market where violence had broken as a result of the inability of bank customers to have access to cash which has been scarce due to naira redesignation.

However, in a statement by the spokesperson of the Command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin said the CP Owohunwa assured residents and visitors to Lagos State that the Command would leave no stone unturned to prevent breakdown of law and order in the State.


This warning has become necessary following attempts by some miscreants to take advantage of the CBN cash policy to unleash violence in some parts of the State.

Part of the statement continued, “All law-abiding Lagosians are encouraged to go about their lawful duties without fear of harassment or intimidation as the Command has restored normalcy and ensured optimal deployment of human and operational resources towards guaranteeing their continued safety and security.”

In the meantime, the Commissioner of Police deeply appreciates the good people of Lagos State for always providing prompt and adequate information to the Police. He encourages more of this as he observes that this partnership and trust have helped the Command in no small measure to curb crime and criminality in the state, and in promptly stabilizing the Lagos State security space.
