The Lagos police commissioner Hakeem Odumosu, has warned officers and men of the Command against negligence, indolence and complacency, especially during the ember months.

Mr. Odumosu gave the warning in a statement signed by the Command’s spokesman Olumuyiwa Adejobi, on Friday in Lagos.

The commissioner urged the personnel to rise up to the security challenges of the ember months that is characterised by high crimes and social vices.

“There is no reason or excuse for any policeman to be absent or indolent on duty in spite of the words of encouragement, solidarity and support from the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu.

“We cannot handle the security of Lagos State with levity,” the police boss said.

Odumosu, therefore, warned Area Commanders, District Police Officers and Heads of Department to henceforth book any policeman who failed to report to duty.

“Such officer will be dealt with according to the provisions of the Police Act and Regulations.

“I appeal to the general public and all and sundry to support the police and collectively fight crimes and criminality in the state,” Mr. Odumosu said.
