Okada Riders, IPOB and Oodua Republic Agitators Constitute Security Threat—Commissioner of Police

Mr. Hakeem Odumosu, who is the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, has mentioned that "three groups" constitute security threats in the state.

He named the agitators of Indigenous People of Biafra(IPoB), Oodua Republic agitators and the commercial motorcyclist (Okada riders) as the three groups.

He stated that, both the IPOB and Yoruba Republic agitators are placed under police close watch. All their activities would be closely monitored he said.

Speaking on the activities of IPOB agitators, the Commissioner of Police said that, intelligence gathering revealed that IPOB agitators plan to attack soft target areas in Lagos. He stated that police are closely monitoring their  activities and assured that strategies are being put in place to neutralize their activities.

Likewise, CP Hakeem Odumosu said that the command had taken notice of the "agitators for the Oodua Republic by some Yoruba separatist groups" and their threats to disrupt law and order in Lagos State.

He stated that 24 of those groups have been identified and their activities are also being closely monitored.

The commissioner therefore urged the public to be vigilant at all times and report any suspicious activities or people to security agencies. 

He pleaded that everyone should adopt the slogan; “when you see something, say something.”
