  • CIVIL SOCIETY GROUPS  TO LEAD  PROTEST AGAINST ACP DAN OKORO

The Executive Chairman of Amuwo Odofin Local Government, Comrade Ayodele Adewale has debunked a statement made by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Umar Manko stating that fake military officers operate in Amuwo Odofin Local Government. Comrade Adewale made this declaration during a world press conference, which was held at the Local Government Secretariat in Festac Town, Lagos.

The Local Government boss while delivering his press statement noted that “the uniform in question is being used all over the Country by the Man O’ War boys. Even when the CP came visiting the Local Government on 14th of August, 2012, he was accompanied in a tour of the Local Government by the Man O’ War boys and other council officials. This same Man O’ War boys were putting on that uniform, which unfortunately the CP termed as Fake Military Officers. Is this the only Local Government where Man O’ War Boys are putting on a uniform that has a resemblance with the Nigerian Army?” he queried.

He further emphasized that the Local Government has cordial relationship with the Armed Forces including the NSCDC, Police, the Nigerian Army, SSS and other paramilitary personnel.

The Local Government boss stressed that the Local Government has been having a headlong battle with the Area E Commander, ACP Dan Okoro, over a criminal and notorious group he formed, called Community Policing Youth Vanguard. “This group is not backed by the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and they operate at will because of the tremendous support from ACP Dan Okoro,” he noted.

He also stated that the group have concluded plans at a meeting they held in 5th avenue, Festac Town to assassinate him and members of his family.

Meanwhile, members of the Civil Society Groups in Lagos State have called on the Inspector General of Police to suspend ACP Dan Okoro for abuse of office and establishing Community Policing Youth Vanguard. “We have been following the trend in Amuwo Odofin Local Government with keen interest, and we are going to lead a protest next week to demand for the suspension of ACP Dan Okoro”, they noted
