Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has decried attacks on law enforcement agents in the state, warning they would be made to face justice.
He said this while condemning the killing of a Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP), Kazeem Abonde, by hoodlums on September 23 during a clash between the police and okada riders operating in Ajao Estate.

He directed the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, to ensure that all those who participated in the attack were arrested and prosecuted.
“This is to encourage law enforcement agents that we will always stand by them as they carry out their duties and, at the same time, send a strong signal to criminals that any attack on our officers will not go unpunished.
The governor commiserated with the family of the late officer and the police command on the loss of the officer whose diligence and bravery have been applauded by his colleagues and relations.
