Kidnapping: Appeal to Ambode

THE Lagos State governor, Mr Akinwumi Ambode, should quickly convene a security summit in the state so that stakeholders can brainstorm on how to tackle the activities of criminals who operate through the creeks.

The recent kidnap of the Oniba of Iba, Oba Goriola Oseni, has shown why this summit is necessary at this period in time.

These criminals, after having their illegal bunkering business curbed by the Nigerian Navy, have descended on innocent citizens. Today, several communities in Ikorodu axis of the state have been deserted, as these criminals now operate with ease.

This security summit will generate ideas which will help in tackling the high crime rate at the coastal communities.
