I Will Do All In My Power To Flush Out Militants From Lagos - Ambode


Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode today vowed that the State Government would deploy its entire arsenal to ensure that militants and vandals threatening the peace are flushed out of the State once and for all.

The Governor gave the assurance when he received the Acting Inspector General of Police, Mr. Idris Kpotun Ibrahim, who was on a courtesy visit to the Lagos House.

“I want to also use this medium to commend the Nigeria Police and other security agencies on our fight against the militants and vandals that we have embarked on in this Operation Awatse in the last one week. I want to commend all the security agencies for a job well done, I also want to thank President Muhammadu Buhari for approving that operation by what we have seen, I also commend the Chief of Defence Staff for also approving the joint effort. We are already seeing the results. I have just been briefed this morning about the impact of what has been done.

“Again, we need to sustain and ensure that these people do not go back to the creeks. On our part as a government, whatever it is that it takes to take the militants and vandals off Lagos we are going to do it, if it means shutting down some locations where they seem to be hibernating in terms of any commercial trade, we would do it and make sure that we guarantee the lives of our people and whatever it takes in terms of financial support for the security agencies to sustain the success we’ve had in the last few days, we would do it,” the Governor said.
