Jubaili Bros Engineering Limited has commended the Lagos State Police Command for improved security in the state.
The manager of the Ikeja branch of the firm, Wissam Abouzeinab, said this was because the rate of vandalism of public utilities, especially generators that are installed to provide street lighting to Lagos residents, has reduced.
Abouzeinab said this on Monday during the firm’s donation of a 27KVA generator to the State Criminal Investigation Department in Panti, Yaba, as part of its corporate social responsibility.
He said the gift was in recognition of the police’s “uncompromising” efforts in fighting crime in the state.
He said the firm decided to donate generator because of the importance of power to intelligence and investigation in modern policing.
“What we are doing is to complement the efforts of the police to effectively carry out high-level investigation of criminal cases. When the police are motivated in their work, the environment will be safe for businesses to operate,” Abouzeinab said.
Receiving the generator, the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Yetunde Longe, thanked the company for recognising police’s contribution to the maintenance of peace and order.
She said the generator would enable the police to provide power in the cells and ensure adequate water supply for inmates, whose human dignity must be respected.
“With adequate power supply, we will have personnel on the ground that will monitor our computer systems to ensure the safety of Lagos residents,” she said.
