The Lagos State Police Command have releases a statement saying they have doubled efforts to nullify the planned celebration of the 7/7 Neo Black Movement of Africa Day, otherwise known as the Black Axe Day in the state.
In a statement released by SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the Command’s spokesman, on Wednesday, hoodlums and cultists have made plans to cause mayhem on the day. He warned people planning to do so desist or face the full wrath of the law.
Hundeyin said, “In view of this, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, in very strong terms, warns these groups with the intent to scuttle the peace being enjoyed in the state to shelve their plans.
“Consequently, the command’s 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 be used for any cult-related gathering as owners of such facilities will be liable to prosecutions.”
