Lagos police, traditional rulers, others inaugurate personality forum

THE communication gap between the law and youths must be reduced; traditional rulers and influential members of the society should be proactive in security matters or be ready to be held accountable, and any police officer that asks for financial gratification before performing his or her duty should be reported.

These were some of the conclusions reached at the inauguration of Eminent Personality Forum, Orile Division, last Saturday. The forum comprise traditional rulers, religious leaders, lawyers, politicians, businessmen and women, youths and other influential personalities of Apapa-Iganmu and Coker-Aguda LCDAs, Lagos State. At the event, Chief Superintendent of Police Angela Akaro, the District Police Officer, DPO, Orile Division, Area ‘C’ Command, charged the members to “organise and re-orientate your youths so we can interact with them. “Majority of them do what they do because of the communication gap between them and the law.

Once we bridge the gap, we can interact and reform many. “The interaction we have in mind includes bringing professionals from different fields to come and discuss with them. With your cooperation, we can also help with vocational training.”
