A statement by Olarinde Famous-Cole, Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, said the move was meant to serve as a preventive method for members of the public to report criminals and their activities.
It would also serve as a means of reporting emergency incidents in the state, Mr. Famous Cole noted, adding that members of the public can reach the command on the hotline number 767 / 112.
The decision came against the backdrop of deadly attacks unleashed on residents of Ikorodu, orchestrated by a deadly cult group known as ‘Badoo’.
“It has become imperative that the Lagos State Police Command makes available the telephone directory of the command headquarters Ikeja, Area commands and their divisions to the general public,” Mr. Famous-cole said in his statement on Sunday.
