The Lagos State Police Commissioner, Idowu Owohunwa, says the Lagos State Transport Management Agency and Lagos Neighbourhood Safety Agency have supported in achieving 80 per cent success in their job in the state

Owohunwa said this when he paid official visits to LASTMA and LNSA at their Oshodi, Lagos headquarters on Friday

The police boss, who visited the LNSA first, was received by the General Manager of the agency, Mr Ifalade Oyekan, and the management team

Owohunwa commended the state government for establishing the agency, and stressed that such an act was the commitment by the government to improve security in Lagos State

He said the visit was not an accident but deliberate, as the structure needed to succeed as the police command was already on the ground, stressing that his visit was to identify with the good job they were doing and seek more synergy

“I have come to seek your continuous synergy and to tell you in clear terms, that I want to encourage you to build this synergy with us so we can present a common front to fight a common enemy – criminals

“We should not work at cross purposes

That will not be to the advantage of Lagos residents and the government, who are funding our activities

”I have been reading all the pieces of criminal intelligence reports you have been forwarding to us, that is why I decided to come

“I can testify to the high value of the intelligence reports you generated, they are not just credible, they are also actionable,” he said

Owohunwa said that the civil disorder squad of the agency should be integrated into the one at the police command so that they could work together

The General Manager of LNSA commended the CP for the visit, stressing that he was the first police commissioner to visit the agency

Oyekan said the agency would be willing to synergise with the police in operations, stressing that they were learning many things from the force

He said they had operatives in all Local Government Council Areas and Local Council Development Areas in the state, adding that the state government had approved for the agency to recruit about 1000 men into the workforce
