The Managing Director of the Lagos State Neighborhood Authority LNSA, popularly known as Neighbourhood Watch; Prince Ifalade Ajasa Oyekan has felicitated with Muslim faithful across Lagos on the celebration of the Eid-El-Fitr and the successful completion of the annual Ramadan fasting which ends today which happens to be the first day in the month of May. With the Federal Government declaring a 2day public holiday in celebration of the 2022 Eid-El-Fitr and workers day, Ifalade urged Lagosians to be law-abiding and also ensure they celebrate without causing rancour or causing mayhem within their localities.
He also appealed to parents to ensure they monitor their wards during the celebration urging them to ensure they celebrate with decency; steering clear of crimes or other vices that can affect the breakdown of laws and order.
To ensure a hitch-free holiday across Lagos state, Prince Falade ordered the adequate deployment of his officers across Lagos to strategic points and other black spots. He also sent a strong warning to street urchins and area boys who intend to cause mayhem to desist from any act that will break down the laws and jeopardize the peace of law-abiding Lagosians.
He said; “I celebrate with Muslim faithful across Lagos and I congratulate Nigerian workers too. For the two days holiday declared by the Government, I have ordered Zonal heads and Unit command heads to deploy officers to the nooks and crannies of Lagos for surveillance and also to maintain peace. Our men are on standby to ensure we all enjoy the holiday in full measure without fear. As we know, Governor Babajide-Sanwoolu is a security-conscious Governor who will do everything humanly possible to protect the lives and properties of all Lagosians. So we are readily aware of the task ahead and we will ensure safety at all costs. We also welcome the usual cooperation of Lagosians to ensure we function at full capacity. We are working hand in hand with other relevant security agencies in the state to ensure we bring peace and tranquillity to our vicinity in during and after the celebration.”
