The Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) Zone-2 Command, Mr Abdulmajid Ali, has charged officers and men in Lagos and Ogun commands to increase their efforts at policing the states.
He reminded the officers that promotion comes with lots of responsibilities, stressing that officers have the duty to live up to the responsibilities of their ranks.
“Today we are witnessing promotion, which is a motivation factor for a job well-done.
I want to remind the just-promoted officers that this is additional responsibility; the officers should take their jobs seriously,” Abdulmajid charged the officers.
The AIG urged them to abide by the rules of engagement and strive to make a difference in whatever they do.
“You must display courage in whatever you do as the IGP wants every officer to live above board in the performance of their duties,’’ he said.
On the security situation in the border towns between Lagos and Ogun States, Abdulmajid said efforts were on to police the areas adequately.
According to the AIG, the police were closing in on the suspected kidnappers that abducted four landlords at Isheri Osun area of Ogun.
He blamed inadequate manpower and logistics for the insecurity being experienced in Mowe and Ibafo areas bordering Lagos and Ogun, and appealed to individuals and the state governments for assistance.
He also urged the public to give more information on criminals’ activities in their communities.
Titilayo Kayode and Shola Okediji were decorated Deputy Commissioners of Police (DCP) by AIG Abdulmajid and Lagos Police Commissioner, Fatai Owoseni.
One of the newly promoted officers, DC Kayode, expressed his gratutude for the elevation and pledged to abide by good ethical practice in the discharge of his duty.
