Different misfortunes acquired by the police were scorched case documents, PC sets, individual and vehicle shows, individual vehicles and outfits of police officers and above all, weapons plundered from the ordnance.

The order has, be that as it may, recouped 18 rifles trucked away by criminals while more are as yet absent.

Lagos State Lead representative, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, after a harsh evaluation of crushed property in the state, had said it would cost over N1 trillion to revamp public and private property pulverized by criminals in Lagos.

In any case, We examinations uncovered that it would cost about N300 million to revamp one consumed police headquarters to the norm of Orile Police Division, which was worked by Office for Global Turn of events (DFID) guidelines.

This figure is diverse for the expense of revamping the consumed military enclosure and purchasing new watch vehicles.

We checks uncovered that a police headquarters worked with DFID guidelines, similar to the Orile Police Division before it was burned to the ground, must contain an examination room, gathering room, workplaces cum-spaces for the divisional cop, divisional wrongdoing official and station official and other chief staff officials with inbuilt comfort and climate control systems.

We accumulated that the correspondence/control room additionally should be first rate, with breezy cells for male and female, just as a standard accommodation.

Likewise, the examination room is a need for any advanced station.

For a police headquarters worked to UN standard, the police headquarters must be a story-working to oblige all the previously mentioned workplaces and rooms, not at all like what is reachable over the state where police headquarters possess dilapidated cabins.

A cop, who gave a breakdown of the expense, revealed to THISDAY that to modify a cutting edge police headquarters, there ought to be solace and openness in accordance with worldwide principles.

As per the official: “In the standard insightful room, the financing must take care of the expense for work stations for the Analytical Cops (Initial public offering), a CCTV to screen and record cross examinations (this keeps the Initial public offering from utilizing power to remove admissions), following machines, coordinated unique mark information base (for criminal profiling and finger impression information), profiling documented and writing material.

“The correspondence/control room is another cost-serious piece of preparing the advanced police headquarters. The expense was fixed at N10 million for each station.

“Between the individual walkie-talkie and the radio set in the vehicles that cost N75, 000 and N250,000 per unit, separately, other gear expected to fit the control room are the PC sets, web offices and writing material, among others.

“With 25 police headquarters consumed over the state and revamping to UN standard fixed at N300 million every, this implies a sum of N7.5 billion would be exhausted.”

Notwithstanding, for the police watch vehicles that were singed, the expense of another one is fixed between N10 million and N15 million, that implies the absolute expense of supplanting every one of the 20 vehicles that were scorched will cost the administration about N300 million.

Two Shielded Faculty Transporters (APC) having a place with the Quick Reaction Crew (RRS) were decimated by the rampaging gangsters.

We checks uncovered that the expense of supplanting the two APCs is about N140 million, at N70million each.

For the three encampment in Mafoluku, Makinde and Ojodu (where shops were additionally scorched), each obliges around 100 homes, the expense of revamping was fixed at N400 million each.

In the arsenal, the gangsters carried off an obscure number of AK47 weapons and guns, from every one of the police headquarters they visited.

At the nearby equal market value, We assembled that one can get an AK-47 for N150, 000 relying upon the sort, while a gun will cost between N70, 000 and N100, 000.

Despite the fact that the police are yet to concoct an all out number of weapons that were taken, We discovered that around 18 have been recuperated over the state.

Taking note of how perilous it will be for such weapons to be in the possession of some unacceptable individuals, particularly with the forthcoming Yuletide, a senior cop, who talked on namelessness, said Lagos inhabitants ought to be on the caution.

He said following the standdown request by the police order, police officers were demotivated and may be hesitant to battle the approaching rebellion.

The official said it was discouraging when the great ones were rebuffed close by the rotten ones in the power.

He stated: “Frankly, you have to feel the beat of the police, particularly the lower framework, they are mad and feel mortified that they ran despite peril on the sets of their bosses.

“In spite of the fact that we have begun recouping a portion of our arms, the issue is that we can’t represent what was taken. We are as yet taking stock to recognize what was taken from every division.”

Then, however the police in Lagos are yet to put a figure to the quantity of expired officials, it was accumulated that more than 40 of them are right now in various clinics, with some fundamentally harmed.

Out of the 40 harmed officials, 19 of them were RRS officials and as revealed by us before, they were en route to calm their associates who did the night move when they were assaulted.

Published

President Muhammadu Buhari has said that  the issues of reorganizing the country can only be dealt with by the National Assembly.

Buhari described reorganizing as a serious issue, adding that in whichever forms it comes be it true federalism or devolution of powers, it remains a constitutional matter.

The President, however, talked on devolving more power to the people.

 

Buhari said this when he accepted members of the Nigerian Inter-Religious Council (NIREC) led by Co-Chairmen, Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar and President of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Samson Supo Ayokunle, at the State House on Friday.

“On the contentious issue of restructuring or true federalism or devolution of powers, like you all know, this is a constitutional matter with which only the National Assembly can deal.

“I remain an unapologetic believer in devolving power to the people and that is why I signed the Executive Order granting autonomy to State Legislature and Judiciary,” Buhari said.

Buhari pointed out that autonomy to State Legislature and Judiciary met with some resistance at the state level, leading to a more than two months’ strike action that has cost the country so much.

 

Buhari said that he believes and hopes that the review of the constitution previously going on at the National Assembly would treat some of the agitating issues in the minds of our people.

WHY SHOULD THE RULING ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS A SACRED AND HIGHLY REVERENED PARTY ENCOURAGE CERTIFICATE FORGERY IN IRU-VICTORIA ISLAND LAGOS AND EXPECT TO WIN?

IT IS CALLED BROAD DAY POLITICAL ROBERY.

THE RULING PARTY ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS SHOULD REMEMBER THAT *“ENDSARS* – *END BAD GOVERNANCE“* ISSUE IS STILL VERY FRESH IN THE MIND OF OUR PEOPLE AND *UNFORTUNATELY LEKKI TOLL GATE* IN IRU VICTORIA ISLAND WAS THE *MASSACRE POINT.*

DESPITE ALL THAT WAS DONE WITHIN IRU VICTORIA ISLAND LCDA DURING THE *“ENDSARS* – *END BAD GOVERNANCE* *PROTEST“,* OUR CHAIRMAN BECAUSE OF HER LOW LEVEL OF EDUCATION, EXPOSURE AND UNDERSTANDING COULDN’T ADDRESS A PRESS CONFERENCE OR EVEN APPEAL TO THE YOUTH.

WE ARE NOT AGAINST THE DECISION OF THE PARTY TO RETURN HER FOR 2ND TERM, WE ARE ONLY CONCERNED ABOUT HER CREDIBILITY AND INTEGRITY.

IT IS OPTIMUMLY CLEAR THAT SOMEONE WHO FORGED HER CERTIFICATE TO BECOME CHAIRMAN OVER US IN 2017 WOULD DO WORST IN 2021.

FOUR YEARS IN OFFICE AS CHAIRMAN OF IRU VICTORIA ISLAND AN AFFLUENT AREA, THE MAIN BUSINESS AND FINANCIAL CENTRE OF LAGOS STATE, NIGERIA.

VICTORIA ISLAND IS ONE OF THE MOST EXCLUSIVE AND EXPENSIVE AREA TO RESIDE IN LAGOS, WE CAN’T CONTINUE TO BE FOOLED BY A SET OF MICRO SCOPIC MINORITY BECAUSE OF PERSONAL INTEREST.

FORGERY IS CONSIDERED A FELONY: THIS IS AN ACT PUNISHABLE BY A RANGE OF PENALTIES INCLUDING JAIL OR PRISON TERM, SIGNIFICANT FINES, PROBATIONS AND DISQUALIFICATIONS.

WHY MUST THE CASE BE DIFFERENT IN IRU VICTORIA ISLAND?

HON RASHEDAT ADU THE INCUMBENT CHAIRMAN IRU – VICTORIA ISLAND LAGOS ALLEGATION OF CERTIFICATE FORGERY, IMPOSITION OF UNQUALIFIED CANDIDATE AGAINST THE POPULAR & CREDIBLE CANDIDATES BY APC LEADERS ARE TOP ON THE LIST OF MANY ISSUES ON GROUND IN IRU VICTORIA ISLAND AHEAD OF THE FORTH COMING LOCAL GOVERNMENT & LOCAL COUNCILS ELECTION IN LAGOS.

He called the *CHAIRMAN a CLOWN* and the primaries a sham, pre-arranged, hijacked and a total political fraud.

He also mentioned the issue of certificate forgery by the incumbent Chairman of Iru Victoria Island LCDA Hon. Princess Rashedat Adu.

He pointed two former local government Chairmen ( *CHIEF RILWAN ALESHINLOYE & ABAYOMI DARAMOLA* ) who are supposed to be seen as Fathers, fountain of wisdom and peace shocked us by descending to the lowest level of thuggery with violent behaviours.
This is another vital issue.

The Chairman forged certificate succeeded in 2017 but she cannot escape the hammer now in 2021 as *Security agencies are already close on her and her* collaborators.

The party leadership should do the needful by disqualifying her and declare any other successfully screened and credible candidates within the Party.

We must not allow local champions, warlords and cultists to have control of APC in Iru Victoria Island.

This will expose the ruling party to more political dangers.

More also the party must be aware that other Political parties are watching and waiting for this apocalypse to loom the ruling All Progressives Congress for them to leverage on to canvass, cajole and win any election.

It is better the Leadership of the party APC look into this before its too late…

WE ARE COALITION OF CONCERNED IRU – VICTORIA ISLAND RESIDENTS AND WE HAVE THE STRENGTH.
