With the deployment of more crime fighting equipment to the command by the Lagos State Government, Adejobi said efforts have been intensified to fizzle out the crime completely.

“The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, has ordered that the combat training, musketry and range practice for police personnel in the command be continuous as the command also commenced the training of the police operatives attached to the newly formed Anti Traffic Robbery Squad to tackle the menace of robbery in traffic in Lagos State.
