Lagos State Environmental and Special Offences Agency, Task Force, has enjoined the public to support the agency by providing useful security information through the state’s emergency toll-free lines 112 and 767.
According to the agency, the public should provide information about criminal activities around them to security agencies as a way of curbing crime and clamping down on all violators of the state’s environmental laws.
Its Chairman, Olayinka Egbeyemi, said the Police Commissioner, Hakeem Odumosu, had directed the agency to clampdown on such violators, especially those impeding the free flow of traffic across the state.
Egbeyemi, a Chief Superintendent of Police said the directive became imperative as a way of sanitising the environment and ensuring free flow of traffic for all road users.
According to him, the directive also empowered the agency to clear all illegal traders, abandoned vehicles, roadside mechanics, miscreants, motorcycles and other activities constituting environmental nuisance across the state.
He said the directive was to be jointly carried out with the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Corps and the Lagos State Neighbourhood Safety Corps.
