Group Commends Manko's Visit To Police Stations


A non-government organisation, Association of Good Leadership Advocates Peace Development, Lagos, has  commended the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Umar Manko, for his regular unscheduled visits to police  stations in the state and urged him to keep it up.

Speaking during a courtesy call on Manko in his office, president of the group, Prince Olusegun Ologbese,  urged the Lagos Police Command boss to move his men to the roads early in the morning to check the traffic  logjam in the Lagos metropolis.

The group also advised Manko to warn his men to desist from checking vehicles’ particulars early in the  morning, as a way of ensuring free flow of traffic.

Prince Ologbese also commended the efforts of past commissioners of police in Lagos State for their  initiatives like stopping policemen from using private vehicles to raid hideouts of suspected criminals.

The group also recommended that Manko should emulate the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, who  usually operates his telephone 24 hours daily.

He said police would ensure a free flow of traffic in Lagos for the benefit of residents.
