A statement said no fewer than 29 divisional police stations and 17 police posts were razed by hoodlums disguised as protesters.

Also, six police officers were lynched, 36 critically injured and 71 police vehicles burnt.

Sanwo-olu said his visit was to boost the morale of the cops following the demoralizing event.

He said the statutory duties of the police could not be wished away because of the actions of a few bad eggs, adding that the impact of the police officers’ absence on the roads was generally felt by residents.

Police officers serving in Lagos, according to Sanwo-olu, will also get life insurance from the state government.

He also promised to donate two 150kva generators to the police, adding that the command headquarters would be connected to the state’s independent power project for constant power supply.
