Lagos wary of bombings at places of worship

29 October 2015, 08:44Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Lagos State Government has called for more security vigilance in churches and mosques to prevent attacks by terrorists.

The state government said the measure was necessary amid renewed attacks by the Boko Haram sect on religious institutions.

The State Commissioner for Ministry of Home Affairs, Abudul Hakeem Abdul Lateef, made the call during a meeting with religious leaders.

The event was part of efforts by the present administration to improve security consciousness of all residents.

Lateef implored the religious leaders to embrace the use of metal detectors in their various places of worship for checking every individual before they are allowed into churches and mosques.

This is especially necessary during Sunday worship and Friday Jumat prayers.

Lateef reiterated the support of the present administration towards ensuring equity and fairness in dealings with religious groups.

"The State Government believes there cannot be peaceful co-existence among people of different religions without justice," said the official.
