Similarly, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Imohimi Edgal, has directed the deployment of an additional 1,000 policemen for the upcoming Eid-El- Kabir holiday to boost the number of men designated for that purpose in the command’s operations order. According to the Command Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) CSP Chike Oti, the deployment of more officers was to ensure a hitch free Sallah celebration through effective coverage of the prayer grounds, holiday spots and the neighbourhoods.

Oti said specialised units like the Explosive Ordinance Department (EOD), the Canine section (Police dogs), the Airsurpport unit, Marine police and the Mounted troops (Horsemen ), have been activated and sufficiently mobilised to guarantee security during the holidays. Oti further said: “The CP assures Lagosians that the Command is committed to their security before, during and after the holiday.

He wishes Muslim faithful happy Eid El Kabir celebration and admonishes the city dwellers to be security conscious and enjoy moderately during the holiday.”
