Police Receives Free Patrol Van, other Items from Residents.

1 Min Read

The Lekki Estate Residents and Stakeholders Association (LERSA) has donated a patrol van to the Area J command, Ajah, of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).

The gesture, according to the association, was to show support to the police division and strengthen its capability for curbing violent crimes and other social vices in the area.

The Ajah division was one of the numerous police stations burnt by hoodlums during the #EndSARS protests in Lagos last October. Police vehicles, as well as other properties were set ablaze during the attacks.

The items donated include a Toyota Hilux, temporary tents, chairs and a generating set.

While appreciating the gesture, ACP Gbolahun said the donation had made the force understand the importance of community support and it was committed to defending the people.

Speaking on the attack, he said: “It was not as if we cannot defend our properties, but we thought of our corporate image and what members of the community would say. Imagine after the protest and community members see dead bodies outside the station, what would be the reaction towards the police?”
