We have no ‘raids’ planned for Thursday, Friday —Lagos Police

The Lagos State Police Command has debunked a story on social media that it will carry out general raiding in the state on Thursday and Friday before elections.

The Police Spokesman for the command , CSP Chike Oti , said on Thursday that such information about raid did not come from the Police in Lagos .

“ The attention of the Commissioner of Police , Lagos State, CP Zubairu Muazu has been drawn to the news making the rounds on the social media to the effect that the Command will carry out a general raid , on Thursday , February 14 and Friday , February 15 , 2019.

“The writer went further to warn people not to keep late nights on the aforementioned days due to the so – called ‘ raid ’ .

“ In view of the development , the Command wishes to unequivocally state that the information did not emanate from it and should be regarded as untrue and people should go about their lawful businesses , ” Oti said in a statement .

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 .

The News Agency of Nigeria had reported that about 30, 000 security personnel would be deployed for the elections in Lagos State.

The security personnel are drawn from the Police , Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps , Nigeria Immigration Service , Nigeria Customs Service , Federal Road Safety Corps , National Drug Law Enforcement Agency , Department of State Services , Nigerian Prisons Service and the Military .
