Issues discussed are modalities to forestall peace in MAO Junction, Fagba and other areas as it’s been a thorn in the flesh of recent.

“We need the support and synergy of both Lagos State Commissioner of Police and that of Ogun State to see to the end of this security challenge, most especially in MAO Junction Killington, Dalemo in Alakuko, Ajegunle and its environs”, he said.
“The most annoying thing is that our police are really working tirelessly to flush out these miscreants but they usually run down to Ogun State and still have the guts to tell security personnel that they are already in Ogun and this is usually so painful”, he said.
In the same vein, he further used the medium to warn residents against the use of fireworks and bangers this Yuletide season. He said banger sales and use is prohibited in the council area and its environs.
