The Lagos State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr Lawal Pedro (SAN), says the state is fully ready for state police.

Pedro made the statement in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on the sideline of the 10th Ramadan Lecture organised by Anwar-ul Islam Old Students Association (ACAOSA), on Saturday in Lagos.

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria said that he had been advocating for state police as far back as 2001, to improve the state’s security.

“As far back as 2001, I have always maintained that the security of this country will be addressed by having state police or community police.

“We are talking about police system that is indigenous to the people themselves.

“Lagos is over ready for the state police. I can assure you that because we have our own Lagos State Neighborhood Safety Corps already in place and fully kitted and ready with even body cameras.

“I think we are ready to go in Lagos. If any state is ready, I can confirm to you today from what Mr Governor – Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu – has done, Lagos State is ready.

“Just give the whistle and you see our police officers on the road,” Pedro said.
