Ijede Council Of Obas, Traditional Chiefs Appreciate IGP For Improving Security In Communities




The Council of Obas and Traditional Chiefs of Ijede Community in Ikorodu, Lagos State sent a strong message of appreciation to the Inspector General of Police, IGP Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun PHD, npm. through the AIG of Zone-2, AIG Olatoye Durosimi for his positive response to a letter addressed to him in February, 2024, requesting Police back up to stem down the burgeoning activities of hardened criminals in the entire Ijede Community.


The letter earlier sent by the Community reads in part; “We write to inform your good self that for sometime now, Ijede Community and its environs within Ikorodu, Lagos State has been inundated with Kidnappings, Abductions, Murder, Cultism activities and all manner of atrocities, making us to go about our legal businesses with fears and apprehension of being attacked or hacked down by the marauding criminals.”


The letter states further; “We must state that these criminals seems to have overwhelmed the Police personnel operating in Ijede Community, environs and we cannot no longer sleep with our eyes closed.


“Our fear is that if these vices are perpetuated by the faceless elements, our community will degenerate into a lawless Community.” The letter reads.


The community leaders while commending the IGP said that since the letter was submitted and prompt action was taken with the deployment of a strong tactical Police team by the Inspector General of Police through the AIG, Zone 2, criminal activities by the misguided elements have drastically reduced and the Community is now relatively safer as people now go about their businesses without any fear or agitations.
