“Domestic violence is the bane of national development” – Lagos CP

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu, has reaffirmed his zero tolerance for gender and domestic violence.

Odumosu says domestic violence is the bane of national development hence he urged all to shun it and preaches amicable resolution of domestic issues.

The commissioner made this known at the wedding ceremony of the daughter to CP Shina Olukolu, the Commissioner of Police, Anti Fraud Unit, Force CID, Alagbon, Lagos at the Royal Oaks Event Centre, Ikate Area, Lekki, Lagos State.

According to Odumosu, domestic violence has occasioned family problems, social dislocations and deviant behaviours which are in turn, detrimental to the country’s national development.

He vowed to partner with relevant government and Non-Governmental bodies to ostracize anyone caught in the devilish act in Lagos State.

CP Odumosu while advising the couple, charged them to uphold the sanctity of marriage and live a worthy life devoid of violence and dysfunctional conflicts.

He congratulated parents of the couple for the successful ceremony; and commended the senior officers and men of the Nigeria Police, who were deployed for various assignments at the event, for their commitment and steadfastness.
