The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu on Monday announced the deployment of the Ajao Estate and his senior officers for allowing night clubbing and violation of other COVID-19 protocols in the area.
The police boss also paraded 113 violators of COVID-19 protocols at the Command Headquarters, Ikeja.
The violators were arrested on Sunday at Garbana Club, Ajao Estate and DNA Club, Victoria Island, Lagos by police operatives of the command including the Lagos State Taskforce led by the Commander, Sola Jejeloye.
The Commissioner of Police, while parading the suspects, vowed to go after club owners and their landlords who contravene the town planning approvals of the state by converting their properties meant for other purposes to nightclubs.
He emphasised on the need to make them scapegoats so as to serve as a deterrent to others in the state.
The Commissioner had a meeting with all the Area Commanders, Divisional Officers and Heads of Departments where he rolled out his plans and strategies to be adopted in curbing crimes and criminality in the state and to specifically tackle cultism in certain areas within the state.

The police boss also warned against the non-challant attitudes of security personnel towards observing COVID-19 protocols in the state.
He vowed to deal decisively with anyone caught in the web of gross violation of the protocols whether civilian or service personnel, as the fight against violation of the protocols, is not selective.
Odumosu warned others to learn and desist from the negligence of the DPO Ajao Estate as any DPO who promotes the violation of COVID-19 protocols would be “fired” and sanctioned departmentally.
He charged the officers and men of the command to discharge their duties without fair or favour and ensure regular visibility policing in their areas of responsibility in the state.
