There may be an end in sight to the recurrent security breaches and criminal activities being perpetrated by criminals along Ikorodu road and some other parts of Lagos.
This is following plans by Lagos State Government to install over 13, 000 Close Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras on Ikorodu road and other major crime flash points across the state as part of measures towards making the state safer for residents. It was also disclosed that new dispatch centres will also be established along Lekki and Badagry.
General Manager, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, LASEMA, Mr Adesina Tiamiyu, who disclosed this at a meeting with all the Heads of Emergency Response Team, ERT, at the Alausa Secretariat, said that the measures were part of government efforts to position the agency for a more efficient service delivery and emergency management.
Tiamiyu disclosed that the State Government was determined towards improving the impact of emergency and disaster management, through effective emergency management with the use of CCTV Cameras, establishment of additional dispatch centres and stepping up of Monitoring and Surveillance Unit of LASEMA.
According to him, the establishment of additional three dispatch centres on Ikorodu Road, Lekki and Badagry areas of the State would complement the existing dispatch points located at the LASEMA Response Unit, Cappa, Oshodi, and the Command and Control Centre, Alausa, which will as a result improve the response time of emergency management in the State.
