13 days after the abduction of six pupils of Igbonla Model College, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fatai Owoseni, has called on school proprietors to support the government in the fight against insecurity in schools.
He added that schools should embrace adequate security measures to combat the threat of insecurity.
Owoseni stated during the 12th Proprietors’ Summit organised the League of Muslim School Proprietors Worldwide, on Thursday.
The police chief, who was represented by the Divisional Police Officer of Alagbado Police Division, Mr. Isiaka Salaudeen, lamented the incessant cases of kidnapping in the state, noting that the police was working relentlessly to eradicate insecurity in the country.
He said, “The Police Force is trying its best to make sure all pupils, both in private and public schools, are provided with safe learning environment that will protect them once they are in the school environment. We are against kidnapping, and we are fighting it tirelessly.
“We also want school owners to assist us and make this work easier. Monitor your pupils and make sure you contact the police when you suspect harm.’’
