…”Our men are not posted out today for environmental or traffic operations”, CSP Shola Jejeloye said
The Lagos State Taskforce has disassociated itself from the report making rounds that officials of the Agency were involved in the killing of an unidentified individual along Mile 2 axis this morning.
The Taskforce in a statement signed and dispatched to News Planet International by the Agency’s Director, Press And Public Affairs, Mr.Gbadeyan Abdulraheem, said thus: “We would like to clearly state that none of its personnel were posted out for operations today except for officers posted to Freedom Park, Ojota, and Maryland to maintain peace and orderliness where a rally by the Nigerian Labour Congress has been scheduled”.
“The Chairman of the Agency, CSP Shola Jejeloye stated that the Agency is usually mistaken for other enforcement units, but he stated that taskforce personnel are clearly adorned in tactical jackets with the word “Taskforce” clearly inscribed in front and behind with unique identification numbers.
“None of our men were posted out today for environmental and traffic operations, rather they were only posted to freedom park to maintain peace and orderliness during the planned NLC rally so that miscreants and other sinister forces do not hijack the protest. Our operational jackets are clearly branded with unique identification numbers for members of the public to recognize during our operations”
The Chairman urged those pointing accusing fingers at the agency to further beam their searchlight at other public or private establishments who branded their enforcement units as taskforce. He also said that the Agency will do all within its power to get to the root of the matter and ensure that perpetrators of the heinous crime are brought to book.
