Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu



The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, on Wednesday, appealed to the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, to release two police helicopters to the Command “to assist in fortifying the aerial patrol and surveillance of the Command with a view to tactically tackling some of the crimes being experienced in the state and by extension, in the South-West”.

Odumosu made the appeal in an address to welcome the IGP to the Command Headquarters in Ikeja, the state capital on Wednesday.


Baba is on a three-day work visit to Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial centre with over 20 million people.


Odumosu sought the release of 13 more Water Cannons and five Gun Boats for the Area Commands in the state to police and secure the roads and waterways that have been “experiencing heavy traffic presently due to the ongoing constructions across the state”.

“In addition, the Command will appreciate the release of two Police Helicopters to the Command to assist in fortifying the aerial patrol and surveillance of the Command with a view to tactically tackling some of the crimes being experienced in the state and by extension, in the South-West,” he said.


The Commissioner, who lamented that the destruction of police structures in the state due to the #EndSARS protests last October, urged the IGP to assist in rebuilding 16 police stations and 13 police posts set ablaze by hoodlums in the aftermath of the protests.


Odumosu also said, “The command has not recorded any violent crimes, especially, bank robbery, kidnapping, banditry etc in the last 20 months, attributing it to the proactive efforts of his men.



Baba, in his address, commended the men of the Lagos State Police Command and urged them to intensify efforts to getting rid of criminals and other enemies of peace in the state.
