    The Executive Chairman of Amuwo Odofin Local Government, Comrade Ayodele Adewale has paid a condolence visit to the family of late Oyoma Edewor at Festac Town, who was shot by a triggered happy police sergeant, Mr. Godwin Otene in Festac Town over the weekend.
    Comrade Adewale wondered why there has been increase in police brutality, robbery attacks on innocent citizens and residents in the Local Government despite police presence. “I am surprised that security of lives and properties are no longer guaranteed in the Local government. We have been having several armed robbery attacks in Festac Town and Mile 2 estate in recent times. In fact, the Lagos State Governor’s Aunty was robbed at gun point in Festac Town and two resident were shot at their head, this is worrisome and becoming unbecoming”, he noted.
    The Local Government boss emphasized that residents now live in fear because security is no longer guaranteed. It is so sad because the Area E command of the Nigeria Police is domicile in the local government under the leadership of ACP Dan Okoro and yet criminally is on its highest with out any respite of hope for residents.
    Comrade Adewale used the occasion to appeal to the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola SAN, to intervene in the security challenges the Local Government has to contend with now.
    It would be recalled that the Community Policing Youth Vanguard set up by the Area E Commander, ACP Dan Okoro has also been terrorizing, intimidating and attacking law abiding citizens, council officials and State Government officials in recent times, and all efforts to curtail their nefarious activities have so far proved abortive.
