His assertion, “Except for the fact that CP ODUMOSU had earlier gave a hard blow on criminal gangs and cult groups in Lagos, as well as the environs before the lockdown, it could have been disastrous and unbearable for residents, even investors to live in peace”.

He pointed out, “CP ODUMOSU may have devised strategies he gained as leader of the Presidential Task Force Enforcement team on Lagos Traffic decongestion to uncover hideouts of criminal elements in the State and its environs.”

He enthused, “That national assignment prepared him to act very fast as Lagos Police Boss in smashing criminals gangs and preventing them from taking over Lagos communities.

“These gangs could not strike at will to terrorise Lagos residents due to the proactiveness of the CP and his men”.

 

 

 

 

The Vice-chairman emphasized that the recent confidence-building tour of various communities in Lagos by the Commissioner in the company of AIG Zone 2, and DIG from Abuja Police Headquarters, further helped to dispel the fear of attacks by criminal gangs and panic due to uncertainty.

However, he advised the Police authorities not to rest on their oars but to be alert, as many residents hardly sleep at night, in order to protect their respective communities from hoodlums attack.

Alhaji Inuwa Abdullai also hailed President Buhari’s aggressive policy on agriculture, which led to the closure of land borders against rice importation.

He said, “The lockdown has shown that Nigerians are now capable of feeding themselves because many people have gone back to the farm, in response to Buhari’s call on Nigerians to look inwards for food production. That is why there is no food shortage during this lockdown period”.

The NARTO Chief added, “President Buhari’s foresight in compelling Nigerians to feed themselves has paid off at this time of adversity.
“It could have been catastrophic for us as a nation if we were to depend on food importation when other countries were also on lockdown”.

EU to Ditch J&J Covid-19 Vaccines from U.S Factory After Contamination Reports

Europe’s drug regulator said on Friday that batches of Johnson & Johnson’s covid-19 vaccine made for the region around the time when contamination issues were revealed at a U.S. manufacturing site would not be used.

The announcement came in the wake of reports, which said the U.S. Food & Drug Administration had asked Johnson & Johnson to discard 60 million doses of its COVID-19 vaccine that were manufactured at the troubled Baltimore factory.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) said it was aware a batch of the active substance for J&J’s Covid-19 vaccine had been contaminated in April, with materials for another vaccine made at the site in Maryland owned by Emergent Bio solutions.

The production of J&J’s vaccine at the site was halted by U.S. authorities and J&J was put in charge of manufacturing at the plant.

The April error involved ingredients from AstraZeneca’s covid-19 vaccine, also being produced at the plant, contaminating a batch of J&J’s vaccine, developed by its Janssen unit.

However, EMA said the batches of the vaccine released in the region had not been affected by the cross contamination, based on the information it has.
