Henceforth, any person found with illegal guns and other dangerous weapons on the Lagos Island Local Government Area would be shot on sight.

The order was issued after an emergency security council meeting summoned by Chairman of Lagos Island East Council Development Area, Kamal Salau-Bashua.

The directive became necessary after persistent clashes between different groups of criminals, resulting in loss of lives and property in the area.

It was gathered that the recent clash during Easter left two people dead and others seriously injured. Property worth millions of naira were also destroyed.

The council boss, Salau-Bashua, said the order, which was issued by Assistant Commissioner of Police in charge of the Lion Building, Oluwole Edger, will help to restore peace and order in the area.

He condemned the violence, noting that security operatives are combat-ready to prevent recurrences.

Salau-Bashua lamented that any form of violence on Lagos Island portends great danger to the economic activities, as major businesses are located there.

On his part, Edger warned criminals and hoodlums to steer clear of the Island, saying his men have sworn to stop violence in any part of the island.
