The newly deployed Assistant Inspector General of Police, AIG Ahmed Iliyasu incharge of Zone 2 Command Headquarters, Onikan Lagos has revealed his plans to tackle criminality in Lagos and Ogun states.

He disclosed that the Toga of his administration is Kick Crimes Out Of Eko And Gateway.

This is as he said professionalism among his men is non negotiable.
Speaking on Wednesday with journalists, the AIG stated that he will be working in harmony with the IGP’s Operation Puff Adder intervention.

He said he is going to reposition the Force for effective service delivery.

“We are going to have robust community policing driven to the hinterlands. Everybody must be involved in policing,” he said.

He advised that policing shouldn’t be only for the police but everybody.

AIG Iliyasu observed that community policing engagement is vital for security of lives and properties.

Calling on stakeholders, the AIG further solicited for the support of academia, professionals, unions, students and the media.

He underscored the importance of effective communication to achieve effective policing.

He said that he and his men are committed to respect for lives of people and their rights, also promising that rule of law will be upheld.

“We are going to be accountable, each and every officer within this zone will be accountable for his action.

“The conduct of officers is going to be reviewed, we are going to have a restructure and review of performances.

“Our direction is to change attitude and platitude of policing as far as policing is concerned, the values of the policemen, we are going to do that.”

He boasted in the crop of commanders at helms of affairs in both states within the zone, he said, “We have effective commanders both in Lagos and Ogun State, the Commissioners of Police are seasoned, they know the terrain.

“We are going to give criminals a hot chase.”

He appealed to all stakeholders, “Let us put our hands on deck to cleanse both Eko and the Gateway (Lagos and Ogun).

Considering that Lagos is a mega-complex city even in terms of international standard while Ogun State is a burgeoning economy and as such we must have refined officers, we should have vision and commitment towards service to the people.

He advocated that policing is service and that commitment is sacrosanct.

He harped on sharing of information and intelligence gathering to achieve a 21st Century policing.

He said his outfit will synergise with other security agencies in the states to have a seamless operation.

He urged the media to give accurate information so that “we can safeguard lives and properties, he said.

He also said his return to Lagos is far from being a simple task.

His words, “Crime, criminality and whatever is associated with antisocial behaviour is dynamic, constantly changing. Crime has no pattern, no ethnography, no boundary. So in view of that we have to review the architecture once again so that we can make home safer and more secure.

As regards the ember months, he urged every police officer to be on ground, up and doing. “Complacency, indolence, unprofessionalism, incompetence will not be tolerated.

“We should all be out and chase out criminals. I am telling you the toga is chase out criminals from Eko and the Gateway.
