Area Commanders and DPOs are tasked by Lagos Police Command to provide maximum security.
The Acting Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, DCP Waheed Ayilara, has directed all Area Commanders and Divisional Police Officers (DPOs) in the state to sustain optimum security within their respective domains.

He equally enjoined the residents to be vigilant, security-conscious and to promptly report any suspicious activity to the nearest police station.
The acting police boss expressed confidence that, with the collective efforts of the police and the community, the state would remain safe and secure for all before, during and after the Yuletide.
