From Suleiman Idris, Lagos

Lagos State Acting Commissioner of Police, Mr Imohimi Edgal has assured residents and visitors of safety amid tight security across the length and breadth of the state during the yuletide season.
The CP urged residents to be vigilant and celebrate moderately during the festive period, just as he restated that additional batches of arms police officers would be deployed throughout volatile areas in the State to ensure safety.
He also warned that the command would not tolerate lawlessness or any act that may conflict with peaceful conduct that the State is known for.
The CP commended the support from the State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode as well as the cooperation the Police received from other security agencies including the Neighbourhood Safety Corps.
While assuring of maximum security during the One Lagos Fiesta and other events slated throughout December across the State, Edgal said it was important for the people to be vigilant, celebrate moderately and pass on useful tips to security agencies.
He also said that all emergency numbers will be fully operational and solicited the cooperation of the citizens in ensuring a safe and crime-free December in Lagos State.
The CP, at the last monthly Security Council Meeting chaired by Governor Ambode assured that adequate security measures have been put in place for residents and visitors to experience a peaceful yuletide season.
Already, Edgal said arrangements have been made to increase police presence across the State especially in areas experiencing traffic congestion due to ongoing construction in various parts of the State.
He added that due to influx of people into the State during the festive period, there is likely to be criminal elements who may want to take undue advantage of such to perpetrate crime, but that efforts have been made to nip such incidents in the bud.
He also threatened that any resident who sell, distribute or use industrial fireworks would be arrested and charged to court, saying that the ban on such is still very much in force.
