Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, has warned members of the Neo Black Movement of Africa known as Black Axe against plans to rally in celebration of what it called 7/7 day.

The Lagos Police Spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin, said the Lagos State Police Command based on credible intelligence at its disposal, gathered that some hoodlums and cultists have perfected plans to foment trouble in the state on Thursday.

Alabi warned the groups with the intent to scuttle the peace being enjoyed in the state to shelve their plans.

The Command said its tactical teams, Area Commanders and DPOs in collaboration with other sister agencies are fully prepared to clamp down heavily on organisers, leaders and progenitors of such sinister groups whose aim is to cause wanton violence in the state.

“The Command is therefore using this medium to appeal to parents and guardians to warn their children/wards to steer clear of any unlawful gathering or society before, during and after the said date. Also, hoteliers are by this release warned not to allow their facilities to be used for any cult-related gathering as owners of such facilities will be liable for prosecutions,” Alabi said.

The CP while urging all residents of Lagos State to be law-abiding and vigilant enjoins them to go about lawful duties without fear of harassment or intimidation.
