Lagos to Set Up Committee on Apapa Gridlock’ – Edgar

The Lagos State Government has announced yesterday, November 15, that it would set up a committee to look into the perennial Apapa gridlock.

Making the revelation to newsmen yesterday after a security meeting in Lagos, the state’s Commissioner of Police, Mr. Imohimi Edgar, explained that the committee apart from looking at the issue of gridlock and how to solve it, it will also look at the now worrisome trend of traffic robbery in which innocent motorist are being robbed of their possession while held up in traffic.

The state police boss stressed that the ban on Okada in Lagos State is still in force hence defaulters will be made to face the full wrath of the law.

He explained that the police has joined forces with resident vigilante groups to drive out criminal elements from the state – a measure which has already yielded results with the recent arrest of 35 criminals at Ilukpeju.

Mr. Edgar therefore advised residents to be security conscious especially during this festive season and report criminal element to the law enforcement agency.
