Lagos - The Lagos State House of Assembly said on Tuesday it would initiate a bill to provide legal framework to enhance the operations of vigilance groups in the state.
The Speaker of the house, Mr Adeyemi Ikuforuji, said this while receiving members of the Vigilance Group of Nigeria, Lagos Chapter, who paid him a visit.
"I will also ensure that the house reaches out to other arms of government in the state to look in the direction of your organisation," the speaker said.
Earlier, Mr Olusola Olawale, the Commander of group, appealed to the speaker to draw a legal framework that would enable them to perform their role of crime prevention.
"In Lagos State, we have been trying to curb crimes, but there is no enabling law to support our operations.We urgently need the support of the house in terms of law to guide our operations," he said.
He appealed to the speaker to assist the group in crime prevention.
