To enable it to fish out members of the Badoo cult group operating in Ikorodu area, the Lagos State Police Command has directed residents of the town and its environs to have valid means of identification.
The police said that any resident moving around that part of the state should henceforth have on them a valid form of identification.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, the Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, said that the directive was prompted by the series of police operations lined up for the area by the Deputy Commissioner of Police for Operations.
Famous-Cole said that the command is concerned about the criminal activities in the area which are affecting the integrity of the state.
According to her, the planned police operations demand that residents carry on them a valid form of identification which will be verified, in order not to be restricted or face apprehension as adequate security arrangements have been put in place for the safety of the people.
The order took effect from Tuesday.
