The Lagos State Police Commissioner, Fatai Owoseni, has warned monarchs in the state against conspiring with militants and kidnappers.
Owoseni made the accusation during an interactive session with community leaders in Ikorodu area of the state.
The state police boss also claimed that some of the leaders act as informants to some of the militants and kidnappers.
According to Owoseni, “There are Baales (village heads) that are informants and sponsors of criminals in this area. They allowed militants to build houses harbouring criminals in the creeks.
“I want the royal fathers to call their chiefs to order. This meeting is convened to tell them that we will no longer tolerate silent conspiracy.
“Traditional rulers cannot tell me they don’t know who is who in their domain. All communities are advised to organise their local vigilantes.”
