The Lagos State Police Command has debunked a story on social media that it will carry out general raiding in the state today and tomorrow before elections. The Police Spokesman for the command, CSP Chike Oti, today said that such information about raid did not come from the Police in Lagos.
The report warned people not to keep late nights on the aforementioned days due to the so-called ‘raid’. The police however said the report should be regarded as untrue and people should go about their lawful businesses.
He said the commissioner had assured Lagosians of adequate security before, during and after the elections, advising all residents to come out en masse without fear of intimidation and exercise their franchise. About thirty thousand security personnel would be deployed for the elections in Lagos State.
