The Managing Director of the Lagos State Neighborhood Authority LNSA, popularly known as Neighbourhood Watch; Prince Ifalade Ajasa Oyekan has felicitated Islam faithful across Lagos on the celebration of the Eid-El-Fitr and the successful completion of the annual Ramadan fasting which ends today.
With the Federal Government declaring a 2-day public holiday in celebration of the 2022 Eid-El-Fitr and Workers Day, Ifalade urged Lagosians to be law-abiding and also ensure they celebrate without causing rancour or mayhem within their locality.
Appealing to parents on monitoring their wards during the celebrations, Ifalade advised on decent celebration and steering clear of crimes and other vices that would affect the breakdown of law and order.
To ensure a hitch-free holiday across Lagos state, the LNSA ordered the adequate deployment of his officers across Lagos to strategic points and other black spots.
He also sent a strong warning to street urchins and area boys who intend to cause mayhem to desist from any act that will break down the law and jeopardize the peace of law-abiding Lagosians.
He said; “I celebrate with Islam faithful across Lagos and I congratulate Nigerian workers too. For the two days holiday declared by the Government, I have ordered Zonal heads and Unit command heads to deploy officers to the nooks and crannies of Lagos for surveillance and also to maintain peace. Our men are on standby to ensure we all enjoy the holiday in full measure without fear.
As we know, Governor Babajide-Sanwoolu is a security-conscious Governor who will do everything humanly possible to protect the lives and properties of all Lagosians. So we are readily aware of the task ahead and we will ensure safety at all costs.
We also welcome the usual cooperation of Lagosians to ensure we function at full capacity. We are working in hand with other relevant security agencies in the state to ensure we bring peace and tranquillity to our vicinity in celebration mood.”
