The Vigilante Group of Nigeria on Sunday assured residents of Lagos State of safety and crime-free ember months.

The Interim Lagos Commander of the group, Mr James Udomma, gave the assurance while speaking in Lagos.

Udomma said the group had placed its men in every nook and cranny of the state and mapped out strategies to secure the communities and ensure crime-free ember months.

He said that residents should be assured of 100 percent vigilance from the group, stressing that it was not competing with the police but worked hand-in-hand with the police.

“A substantial number of arrests have been made by the group and as we do this, we hand them over to the police for investigation and prosecution.

“As a matter of fact, the group is working to ensure crime-free ember months in Nigeria will be achieved with the support of the police.

“The vigilante group, for whom we are, don’t abate crime and we say no to crime and I assure you the crime rate will be reduced to the barest minimum,’’ he said.
