The Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Tuesday said that the killers of Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) Kazeem Abonde, attached to the Police Command of Lagos State would not escape justice.

It was reported that CSP Abonde, while on official duties on Sept. 23 in Ajao Estate in Isolo Local Council Development Area (LCDA) of Lagos, was killed by yet-to-be-identified hoodlums.

Sanwo-Olu, in a statement from the Lagos State Governor’s Press Centre, said that the state government had noted with deep concern attacks on law enforcement agents by hoodlums.

He said that such attacks, which he described as senseless, were attempts to trample on law and order by those who were desperate to turn the society upside down.

According to him, the state government will not allow attempts to trample on law and order to happen, as attackers of security agents in the state will face justice.

“I have directed the Commissioner of Police to ensure that all those who participated in this savagery are brought to justice.

“This is to encourage our law enforcement agents that we will always stand by them as they carry out their duties and, at the same time, send a strong signal to criminals that any attack on our officers will not go unpunished.

“Such display of savagery as the one in which CSP Abonde died will not be allowed in our state, no matter the circumstances,” he said.

The governor said that the law was for all.

He said that those who took the laws into their own hands were promoters of jungle justice, which would not be allowed to take roots in Lagos.

“I commiserate with the family of the fallen officer and the Police Command on the loss of this fine officer, whose diligence and bravery had been applauded by his colleagues and relations,” Sanwo-Olu said.
