Ibadan Explosion: Lagos Police on red alert – CP

The Lagos state police command said it has taken steps to prevent any explosion or terror attack in any part of the state.

Police commissioner, Adegoke Fayoade, on Wednesday, January 17, told reporters that the command had already identified certain areas where criminal elements were regrouping and had taken steps to effect arrests, and mop-up weapons for the overall safety of residents.

He disclosed this while answering questions from reporters after his maiden press briefing and parade.

Fayoade said: “On the explosion in Ibadan when it took place yesterday, we knew. Just like you said, it can happen anywhere. So, we have put our measures on the ground and have looked at places where such an explosion can take place. Very soon you will see us making arrests in such areas in order to avert such explosion in Lagos.”

The Nation reports that intelligence at the disposal of security agencies had consistently indicated terrorists fleeing military might in the northern part of the country were establishing sleeper cells in certain parts of Lagos for regrouping.
