The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has alerted

Lagosians and indeed all Nigerians of the sinister plan by the PDP led

federal government to sponsor a massive breakdown of law and order in

Lagos through the deployment of hoodlums and thugs under the guise of

SURE-P Federal Task Force.
The party said that these hoodlums who are being recruited and armed ahead

of the 2014 general election are being deployed and armed to cause crisis

and massive breakdown of law and order in Lagos using the control of

traffic
In a release in Lagos, signed by the Lagos State Publicity Secretary of

the All Progressives Congress, Joe Igbokwe, the party said that what the

PDP is doing is clearly recruiting hoodlums and brigands for the purpose

of causing a breakdown of law and order in Lagos and that Lagosians must

confront this evil plot to throw the state into needless crisis. It warns

that no one should take the civility of Lagosians and the Lagos State

government for granted.
“Yesterday, we witnessed the complete breakdown of law and order and

breakdown of traffic in Lagos when these hoodlums under the guise of

SURE-P federal task force went on rampage, fighting LASTMA officials with

cudgels and inflicting harms on them, all in a bid to take over control of

federal roads in Lagos. We note that PDP leaders have been making rounds

in the camp of these hoodlums, where they were quartered and have been

distributing monies and other inducements to them in readiness for their

real roles as thugs for PDP politicians in 2015. Lagosians note that most

of these thugs are doing private domestic works in the private residences

of the leaders of PDP in Lagos and this is not far from the real missions

of these thugs who are at the beck and call of PDP members for reasons

that are far from patriotic.
“We can say that we saw this coming. It will be recalled that when the

recruitment for these hoodlums started, we warned of the dubious nature of

these hoodlums. But this was denied by authorities of the federal ministry

of Works and other agencies. But we knew the dubiousness of these denials

obtains in the fact that as they try to make these denials, the

recruitment and arming of these thugs right under their facility

increased. We have warned that these are ghouls being recruited for the

task of destabilizing Lagos in the same fashion former minister, Adeseye

Ogunlewe did and which ended up in bitter political frustration for him.

“We note that these political thugs who are dressed in black uniform and

addressed as SURE-P Federal Task Force have recently come up with what

they term their duties and these are;
i). Protect Federal Properties in Lagos
ii). Right of Way.
iii). Setback
iv). Traffic Control
v). Enforcement.
“Even as Lagosians wonder what legal right these hoodlums are operating

with, we ask what properties are they protecting in Lagos and against

whom? We ask what these hoodlums are enforcing and how the federal

government is vested with the control of city and street traffic when

there are so many yearning areas needing the attention of the federal

government. What are the duties of the police, Road Safety and LASTMA if

we must create an emergency agency of political thugs and hoodlums armed

with dangerous weapons to launch brigandage on Lagos roads?

“We are still at a loss with the obsession of the PDP and the Jonathan

government with this project of sponsoring disruption and mayhem in Lagos.

We wonder whether Lagos is the only state where there are federal roads in

Nigeria. We wonder how control of traffic in Lagos roads should be the

function and responsibility of the federal government even when it is

obvious that this present government has done nothing either to repair the

worsening state of federal roads or adding even one kilometer to the

federal roads in Lagos. Nothing adds up here except the burning desire

that is ravaging the rank and file of the members of the PDP to set fire

to Lagos for its unprecedented progress and peace in the face of the gross

failure of the federal government in nearly every sector of governance.

“Lagos APC is calling on all Lagosians, traditional rulers, stakeholders

and leaders of thought to stand up against this act of political

desperation. We urge all Lagosians to look out for these hoodlums and

resist them for what they are-sponsored political thugs out to cause

maximum breakdown of peace and order in Lagos. We warn that Lagos should

not be turned to a theater of blood by desperate political wayfarers who

want to set the state on fire in a bid to realize their selfish

ambitions.”
