Lagos Police On ‘Red Alert’ Over Alleged Threats Of Terrorist Attack

The Lagos police command says it is “working seriously” to prevent any form of terrorist attack in the state.

Benjamin Hundeyin, Lagos police spokesperson, spoke during a Twitter Space on Saturday, which was monitored by PUNCH.

Over the past few days, the spate of violent attacks has increased in many parts of the country.

Abuja, the country’s capital, has also witnessed a series of violent onslaughts on security operatives, including a recent attack on troops of the presidential guard.

Speaking on the readiness of the Lagos police to combat terrorism, Hundeyin said all security apparatus in the state have been “optimally deployed” to prevent any attack.

He said the Department of State Services (DSS) has also been sharing intelligence reports with the command.

“We are working seriously with other security agencies. Many times when I am with the commissioner of police, Abiodun Alabi, the Department of State Services keeps sending intelligence reports to us,” he said.
