Ambode Inaugurates MOPOL Base To Tackle Badoo, Kidnappers

As part of strategies to tackle frequent killings and kidnapping in Ikorodu area of Lagos state, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode yesterday commissioned a new Police Mobile Force (PMF) Squadron Base 63 in Igbogbo-Baiyeku with a declaration that the criminal elements hitherto hibernating in the axis would no longer have a place to hide.


Speaking at the event well-attended by traditional rulers, community chiefs, political and religious leaders as well as top security chiefs, Ambode expressed optimism that the new unit would go a long way to effectively address the security challenges being experienced in Ikorodu and environs in recent times.

Ambode, who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Mr Tunji Bello, said aside the fact that the primary responsibility of government was to ensure safety and security of its citizenry, the decision to put the new unit in place was in line with the commitment of his administration to transform the state as no meaningful development would be achieved in an atmosphere of chaos, fear and uncertainty.

He said: “The security and safety of residents of our dear State cannot and will not be compromised. This is why this administration, in partnership with well-meaning individuals and the Organized Private Sector (OPS) have invested and continue to invest in the provision of equipment and other security infrastructure for efficient and effective operations of security agencies in the State.

“The establishment of this Police Mobile Force 63 Squadron in this location was initiated by the Lagos State Government to effectively address the security challenges being experienced in the Ikorodu axis of the state.

“With the commissioning of this Squadron, which we have provided with operational vehicles, communication equipment, among others, all criminal elements within Ikorodu and its environs, will have no place to hide.
