Lagos govt delivers newly built station to Epe Marine Police

The Lagos State Government (LASG) has unveiled a newly constructed police station at the Epe Marine Division and handed over a 12-room bungalow to the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCS) in Badagry.

The former police station at the Epe Marine Division was slated for demolition due to its interference with ongoing construction projects.

Speaking at the handover ceremony, Engr. Olufemi Daramola, the Special Adviser to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Infrastructure, emphasized the importance of prioritizing existing projects, such as the rehabilitation and upgrading of strategic roads in Epe Local Government Area, to enhance connectivity and alleviate traffic congestion.

The relocation and reconstruction of the Epe Marine Police station were necessary to accommodate the expansion of road infrastructure, including the redesign of segment five (Epe Marina Road).

Superintendent of Police (SP) Richard Ekemerusu hailed the new facility for its durability and advanced security features, such as CCTV surveillance, which will enhance law enforcement efforts and ensure public safety.

In Badagry, the LASG handed over a 12-room bungalow to the Nigerian Correctional Service to facilitate the completion of the Hospital Road project (Phase 1).

Controller B. R. Freedman of the Nigerian Correctional Service commended the LASG for swiftly reconstructing the staff quarters, which now offer modern amenities such as generator power supply and water tanks to support the comfort and efficiency of NCS staff.

These infrastructure projects underscore the LASG’s commitment to enhancing public services and fostering socio-economic development across Lagos State.
