Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu has made moves to put Lagos Police officers on alert in its bid to curtail cult related activities and forestall any possible breakdown of law and order in the State.
The move is coming against the backdrop of the commemoration of the 7/7 Annual Celebration (Boogie-Night) of the Neo Black Movement of Africa aka Black Axe, Wednesday, July 7, in which the Command has warned against any gathering, under whatever guise.
The Command, in a statement signed by CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi and made available to NAOSRE, stated that based on available and processed intelligence at its disposal, Odumosu has deemed it necessary to warn the group to desist from any celebration to commemorate its 7/7/2021.
The Police have therefore, put measures in place to fortify the state against any unlawful gathering, procession, lawlessness and possible breakdown of law and order in Lagos State.
The Command also warns any group of persons under any nomenclature particularly members of the Neo Black Movement of Africa, aka Black Axe, to steer clear of Lagos State as the police and other security agencies are prepared to go after and deal with them within the ambits of the law.
While directing the Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers and Heads of Tactical Units to monitor the activities of cultists and intensify patrols across the state, Odumosu reiterates the command’s zero tolerance for cultism and other social vices in Lagos State.
He however, appeals to the general public, especially parents and guardians, to monitor and discourage their children and wards from engaging in any unlawful group and criminal acts as the long arm of the law will definitely catch up with any criminal.
