•Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa.
The Association of Lagos Titled Chiefs, a non-political association of honorary chiefs and prominent members of the Lagos community, who have served the state and the nation meritoriously, has expressed concern about the increase in cases of attacks by traffic robbers in some parts of Lagos, especially at the traffic light junctions on Lagos Island.
The association, in a statement by the General Secretary, Olawumi Gasper, made available to reporters hailed the launch of a special operation code-named: ‘Operation Flush’, to curb the high rate of traffic robberies in the Lagos metropolis.
It lamented increased rate of traffic robberies caused by gridlock.
The body pledged to support Lagos State Police Command for a safer state.
It lauded the police for efforts to reduce crime by introducing ‘Operation Flush.’
The chiefs noted that security agents seemed to be helpless, as traffic robbers continued to have a field day even in broad daylight, leaving motorists and commuters with harrowing tales.
The association urged Lagosians to support the police command by reporting traffic robberies and suspicious activities at the nearest station.
