The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu has raised an alarm that members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, are planning to attack some vulnerable areas in the state.

He said this at a stakeholders’ forum on security chaired by Lagos State governor, Babjide Sanwo-Olu on Monday.

He also acknowledged threats posed by agitators of Oodua Republic and other Yoruba successionist groups.

Odumosu said 24 24 of these groups have been identified and being closely monitored.

According to the police commissioner, the threats have been put on the radar of the Lagos Command intelligence-gathering unit. He added that strategies are being planned to nip the threats in the bud.

He said, “The command has taken notice of agitators for Oodua Republic by some Yoruba separatist groups and the threats to disrupt law and order in the state. Twenty four of these groups have been identified and being closely monitored.

“Similarly, the threat of IPOB to attack soft targets in Lagos is equally being put on the radar of the command intelligence gathering and other security services in the state. Strategies are being put in place to neutralise their activities.

“The command is using this medium to solicit for the support of all and sundry to be vigilant at all times and report any suspicious person or movement to security agencies. Let us adopt the slogan of ‘when you see something, say something.’”
