The Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Mr Hakeem Odumosu, has alleged that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is planning to attack the state.
Odumosu, who spoke on Monday at a security summit convened by the Lagos State Government in Lagos, said the threat was being investigated.
He added that security agencies would foil the plan.
Odumosu said, “The command has taken notice of agitators for Oodua Republic by some Yoruba separatist groups and the threats to disrupt law and order in the state.
Twenty-four of these groups have been identified and are being closely monitored.
“Similarly, the threat of IPOB to attack soft targets in Lagos is equally being put on the radar of the command intelligence gathering and other security services in the state.
“Strategies are being put in place to neutralise their activities. The command is using this medium to solicit the support of all and sundry to be vigilant at all times and report any suspicious person or movement to security agencies. Let us adopt the slogan of ‘when you see something, say something.”
