Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has stated that his administration is working on tackling insecurity and protecting lives and property.

He made the statement at the weekend at the 27th Annual Synod of Methodist Church Nigeria, Diocese of Lagos Mainland.

The Synod, hosted by Ikate Circuit, was held at Folawiyo Bankole Memorial Methodist Church, Ikate, Surulere, Lagos.

Governor Sanwo-Olu, represented by his Special Adviser on Religion (Christian), the Very Revd Bukola Adeleke, said security agents had been deployed in the nooks and crannies of the state to protect lives and property.

He assured Lagosians of safety but urged them to assist the government by reporting suspected criminals in their neighbourhoods to security agencies.

The Archbishop/Bishop of the diocese, the Most Revd Obafemi Adeleye, speaking about the theme of the Synod: ‘Watch and Pray’ (Matthew 26:41a), said: “Nigerians should watch and pray at this perilous time.”

He said Methodist Church Nigeria is praying for the country to overcome insecurity that is scaring away investors.

The cleric said Nigeria should be restructured to save it from disintegration.
