“We will soon receive our ordered drones, which will allow us to monitor the length and breadth of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway and all areas where people engage in nefarious activities.

“We will continue to look for people who will work with us. I recently met with two highly placed law enforcement officers who have decided to come and work with us by assisting with training, support, and fundraising.

“I will unveil these individuals and introduce them to you in the coming weeks,” the governor stated.
