Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Friday urged Lagosians to ignore the security threats on the state, insisting that there is no reason to panic.
Sanwo-Olu dispelled the rumours while addressing journalists at Lagos House Marina after the State Security Meeting on the level of alert from the commanders of all security formations in Lagos.
The governor said all security formations had been put on high alert to ensure public safety.
This is coming against the background of the reported security threats to the city of Lagos.
Sanwo-Olu said members of the State Security Council had reviewed the situation across flashpoints in Lagos, directing improved vigilance to neutralise intending threats.
The governor said, “In the last three and a half hours, we discussed the current security situation in the state, and we’ve reviewed where we’re. We have our heads together and come up with a strategy that is assuring to our citizens.
“All of the security agencies have been activated not to cause panic; they have been reassured of not only the support of the state government but they also have been encouraged to be vigilant in their statutory responsibilities.”
He urged citizens to continue to go about their lawful duties and be law-abiding, while also imploring them to report suspicious activities around them.
