The Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of Zone 2 Command, AIG Olatoye A. Durosinmi, says he has directed the commissioners of Police in charge of Lagos and Ogun states to beef up security around worship centres, shopping malls and key public installations during and after the Easter celebration.

The AIG said criminals might want to use the opportunity of the presence of huge crowd around worship centres and shopping malls to carry out attacks on those areas.

Durosimi also said vandals might want to cash in on the limited presence of people around public installations during the Easter holidays to vandalize public property.

A statement by the Zonal Police Public Relations Officer, SP Ayuba .T. Umma, revealed that the AIG had directed the Commissioners of Police in Lagos and Ogun states, alongside commanders of tactical units and all officers within the zone, to implement heightened security measures across the region.
