• Hundeyin tells Lagosians to ‘disregard fake news’ meant to distract us
The Lagos State Police Command has told Lagosians to disregard fake news making the rounds about a supposed new CP in Lagos.
It affirmed that CP Sylvester Abiodun Alabi remains the Commissioner of Police in the command.
This information was gathered by the National Association of Online Security News Publishers, NAOSNP in a press statement released by the Command’s Spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin to the Association.
‘The Lagos State Police Command has been inundated with requests for clarification on the status of the Commissioner of Police in the Command.
We wish to state categorically that the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State is still CP Abiodun Alabi, fdc, mnim, psc. For the avoidance of doubt, no Commissioner of Police has been posted to Lagos State.’
‘Members of the public are therefore urged to disregard fake news making the rounds that a new Commissioner of Police has been deployed to Lagos State Police Command.
It is hoped that this clarification would halt the barrage of calls to officers of the Command which has resulted in needless distraction and waste of valuable time’, NAOSNP gathered.
Hundeyin concluded: ‘The Lagos State Police Command will keep residents and the good people of Lagos State updated whenever the need arises’.
It would be recalled that CP Sylvester Abiodun Alabi recently marked his 1 year in the helms of the Command some days ago.
