The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command Edgal Imohimi has ordered all police formations under the command to embark on Show of Force.
The exercise, scheduled for Thursday 14th May 2018, will commence from 6.00am to 4.00pm across the state.
In a press release by its public relations officer SP. Chike OTI, the command said the operation is to assure Lagosians of its readiness to provide adequate security for the inhabitants of the state throughout the Sallah holiday and beyond.
According to the statement, the Show of Force, among other things, is designed to send a clear warning to criminal elements that the police, at the forefront of internal security in the state, with the active collaboration of sister agencies, will give no room for evil and anti-social acts.
The command therefore urged members of the public not to panic when they see policemen marching through their streets with their security assets as the operation is not to cause fear or intimidation.
It pointed out that any inconvenience caused by the operation is not intended.
The CP therefore seeks the understanding and cooperation of Lagosians while the activity lasts.
