He urged officers and men of the Command to be alive to their duties and ensure provision of adequate security for lives and property of residents in Lagos State, during the festive period and beyond.
“In furtherance of the command’s fights against crimes and criminality in the state, Odumosu directed the Commanders and Special Squads to embark on continuous and massive raid of identified black spots in different areas of responsibility to be in tune with the standard operating procedure of the Nigeria Police Force and international best practices.
