In a release in Lagos, signed by the Lagos State Publicity Secretary of the APC, Joe Igbokwe, the party says that quick rescue of the kidnapped school girls and the arrest of the perpetrators of that heinous crime has shown that the state is ready and prepared to deal criminality a lasting blow.
It warns perpetrators of crime that the state government will not desist from making Lagos a no go area for criminals.
“We are pleased at the clinical way and manner the kidnapped school girls were rescued as it shows a state practically charged to deal decisively with criminality with the precision that was on display in the rescue of the school girls.
“We are sure that from the confession of one of the arrested perpetrators of the crime that Lagos is a no go area for criminals, that intending criminals now know that Lagos will do everything to stop and nab them in the course of their acts.
“We salute the kind of commitment shown by the state government, the highly motivated security agencies in the state and other relevant agencies that moved in to ensure that the kidnapped school girls were rescued in record tone without acceding to the criminals’ demand for ransom.
“Lagos APC is pleased that the message that Lagos is fast becoming a no-go area is sinking among criminals themselves and we warn them to steer clear of the state as Lagos has been prepared to deal with every manner of crime committed in its territory.
“We applaud the huge investment the Ambode government has made on security and say that the rescue of the school girls provides yet another justification of this investment.
