A mild face off ensued between Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Lagos State Governor, and an unidentified Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP), during the governor’s visit to Magodo Estate Phase II to address the continued heavy police presence around the estate.

While speaking with the governor, the CSP said he and his men were manning the estate on the orders of Abubakar Malami, the Attorney General of the Federation, and Usman Alkali Baba, the Inspector-General of police.

However, in his response to the officer, the governor asked him to call his superiors in Abuja to give him orders to vacate the premises.

“Can you tell your superiors in Abuja that the governor is here, and I am the chief security officer, and that you have no business being in my state?” Sanwo-Olu was heard saying in a video recorded by The PUNCH.

But the police officer asked the governor to make the call himself.

“When I make that phone call, it will be tougher,” the governor further said.

The governor said he had made two separate phone calls to the IGP and the AGF, and that the latter told him he was not aware of any deployment of police officers to the area.

He also said the police officers had no business manning the estate as they were not from the Lagos State Police Command.

Despite the comments from the governor, the police officers did not vacate the estate. Rather, they started singing and gyrating after the governor left.
