AIG warns Lagosians against flashy lifestyle

The Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of Zone 2, Mr. Bala Hassan, has advised Lagosians against any lifestyle capable of encouraging crime in the society.

Hassan said Nigerians must continue to be vigilant and watchful not to allow themselves to be victims of crime through careless attitude.
He gave the advice on Thursday in Lagos, while speaking at the third biennial conference on community policing, organised by the Lagos state Command of the Police Community Relations Committee.

Hassan said those that engaged in crime were encouraged to do so because of the ostentatious lifestyles of people around them.
Hassan while speaking on the theme, ‘PCRC and criminal opportunity,’ said, “As Christmas is fast approaching, we must live a moderate life so that we do not give criminals the opportunity to operate.
“Anything that will make us victims of crime should also be avoided. It is people that give criminals the opportunity to commit crimes and we must ever be vigilant.
“When you go to the bank to withdraw money and you keep the money in your car where the criminal will see it and remove it, are you not the one giving opportunity to the criminal to commit crime?”
Hassan also used the occasion to assure residents of the zone of the police’s preparedness at ensuring a crime-free Yuletide.
