Lagos State Governor, Akinwumi Ambode, has vowed to dethrone any traditional ruler, who aids kidnapping in the state.
The State Commissioner for Local Government and Community Affairs, Alhaji Muslim Folami, stated this at the ongoing ministerial briefing in commemoration of Ambode’s second year in office.
“Intelligence reveals that some of these Baales, particularly from Ikorodu and Ishawo collaborate with the miscreants to kidnap innocent souls.
“Yesterday, I told them to their faces this might lead to dethroning and we will do just that if investigations reveal that you are part of the criminality,” Folami said.
Folami also disclosed that Lagos has acquired five hectares of land, for the permanent settlement of the security operatives in Igbodu community in Epe, to curtail kidnapping.
“The land has been cleared and ready for development,” he said.
