Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has said that whistleblowers who provide the state government with useful information on criminals and crimes would be handsomely rewarded.
Explaining more at the launch of the Lagos Neighbourhood Safety Corps (LNSC), Ambode said that more than ever before, the state government was committed to stamping out crimes in the state, which is why the safety corps was launched.
He added that with the state’s huge population and unique challenges, the police need support to complement their efforts, especially in areas of community policing.
“On August 15, 2016, I assented to the law that created the Neighbourhood Safety Corps. The corps is designed to provide a second layer of policing in order to ensure our state and communities are more secure.
“Let me, however, make it abundantly clear that the Neighbourhood Safety Corps is not in any way in competition with the regular Police Force. “In actual fact, they are expected to assist and complement the police by providing useful intelligence for crime prevention and to facilitate the arrest of perpetrators of criminal activities in our communities.
