According to him, lawlessness will not be tolerated in the state.

“Protests that started with this format, in Lagos, always snowballed into infringement of the rights of others, destruction of property and difficult-to-manage situations.

“At Lagos State Police Command, we put crime statistics to use,” Hundeyin said.

He said section 4 of the Police Act 2020 stated that the police shall maintain public safety, law and order and also protect the lives and property of all persons in Nigeria.
