Lagos-Ibadan Expressway: Police To Deploy Technology-Based Assets Against Kidnapping

Written by on November 15, 2022

The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Usman Baba said the police commands in Lagos, Ogun and Oyo states will deploy technology-based and tactical assets to forestall kidnappings and other ugly incidents happening along the ever-busy Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

To address these issues, the IGP ordered an immediate restructuring of the security architecture on the road to provide adequate deployment of officers and assets to ensure the protection of lives and property along the expressway.

Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, made this known in a statement on Tuesday

The statement said the IGP similarly emphasised that the police leadership is not insensitive to the plight of motorists on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

In recent weeks, the gridlock associated with the road has become compounded and nightmarish with kidnapping as unscrupulous elements attack motorists, cart away their valuables and abduct them in exchange of millions of naira as ransom.
