When I Was Governor of Lagos State RSS had only 37 Rifles -Fashola


 Immediate past governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Raji Fashola (SAN) has revealed when he took over power,the Police Rapid Response Squad had only 37 rifles..Speaking during a programme on Channels Television titled “View from the top,”Fashola said
“We need to provide equipment and resource for security personnel. If they do not have equipment and resource, they will not be able to do their work. One of the things I found out at the security town hall meeting was that the Rapid Response Squad that was responsible for responding to violent crimes, had only 37 rifles at the time.

“And that was the period when we had bank robberies almost every day of the week. People forget that now. We had robberies and carjacking and what we used to see was that police would respond after the robbers had gone.
“So, during my first meeting with them, I asked them why they arrived at crime scenes late and we learnt there were no vehicles, no fuel supply and more importantly, they did not have enough guns. Most of the guns were at the police stations and the RRS of almost 2,000 personnel had only 37 guns.”
