In a bid to enhance safety and orderliness, the Lagos State Taskforce on Environmental Sanitation and Special Offences Unit recently conducted an operation along the Agege railway corridor. Led by Chairman Chuef Superintendent of Police, CSP Shola Jejeloye, the exercise aimed to safeguard the lives and property of residents while ensuring the security of the rail tracks.
The primary focus of this initiative was to clear illegal traders from the railway area. CSP Jejeloye emphasized the importance of discouraging individuals from conducting business and erecting makeshift structures on the rail tracks, which hinder the smooth movement of trains and mar the appearance of the surroundings. The taskforce is committed to addressing environmental crimes effectively and preventing traders from returning to the tracks.
The operations across various rail tracks in the state are set to last for at least a month to maintain the progress achieved. CSP Jejeloye assured the public that this is only the beginning, and more extensive activities are planned for the coming weeks. The goal is to sustain the efforts to restore order and environmental decorum along the rail corridors until the desired results are accomplished.
In conclusion, the chairman urged all residents to refrain from engaging in activities that lead to environmental infractions. By doing so, they can contribute to creating a safe, peaceful, and pleasant living environment for everyone.
