The Executive Chairman of Amuwo Odofin Local Government, Comrade Ayodele Adewale has stated that the Local Government is under siege. He made this assertion while addressing journalists at a press briefing, at the Local Government Secretariat in Festac Town, Lagos.

Comrade Adewale reiterated that the Area E Commander, ACP Dan Okoro has been using a notorious and criminal group he formed, called Community Policing Youth Vanguard to terrorize, intimidate, rape and harass Council and State officials, Residents and Visitors alike in the Local Government.

The Local Government boss wondered, “Why has the Nigeria Police not arrested the group that came to attack the Local Government Officials inside the Secretariat, after receiving video clips and evidence at their disposal, after several days of the attack”.

“What is most worrisome is that their actions have gone unabated because ACP Dan Okoro has been very supportive of their course in unleashing terror on defenseless citizens and the good people of Amuwo Odofin Local Government,” he noted.

Comrade Adewale used the medium to call on the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the Lagos State Governor, and the Inspector General of Police to investigate the issue at hand, with a view of removing him as the Area E Commander of the Nigeria Police, if found culpable.

Re-echoing the call for his removal, the President of the Festival Town Residents Association, Comrade Jola Ogunlusi noted that, it is high time ACP Dan Okoro be removed as the Area E Commander because the residents of the Local Government now live in fear of the unknown, as the activities of the Community Policing Youth Vanguard is becoming unbecoming.
