cool, but does not make sense for states to fund a federal police which they can't control

That is not what is going on here. RRS is exclusive to Lagos and one of the unique parastatals, revamped under Tinubu and Fashola, keeping Lagos much safer than many other States in Nigeria.

Sanwo Olu funding RRS is self-beneficial for Lagos, rather than the NPF, because their operation aids better security of Lagos alone.

RRS is actually a small glimpse of how great a Lagos State independent police force could be.

Rapid Response Squad (RRS)
Rapid Response Squad (RRS): This is a section of the Lagos State Police Command set up to respond speedily to emergencies within Lagos State.

It was initially referred to as ‘Operation Sweep’ during the Buba Marwa military administration and later restructured and re-organized and renamed ‘Rapid Response Squad’ [RRS] by the Tinubu Administration.

The Squad was charged with onerous task of flushing crime out of every part of Lagos State. The RRS comprises of about two thousand officers. The Lagos State Security Trust Fund (LSSTF) equips the Rapid Response Squad (RRS), through the donations and contributions from Organizations and well-meaning individuals, to enhance its operational capability and the effectiveness of the men of RRS.

This is reflected in the thousands of motorbikes, patrol vehicles, helicopters, gunboats, ballistic helmets/bullet proof vests, rain coats/boots, etc provided for the RRS which has helped to significantly reduce the crime rate in the State. The LSSTF is the “unseen” face behind the RRS.

Very useless police. Check those vehicles out in 6 months.

Dangote gave them hundreds of these just few years ago. No one knows where the skeletons/chassis were buried.

Don't mind them. Froth at the mouth like a mad dog because Lagos is not using Innoson yet remain hypocritically silent over how SE Governors have no interest in promoting the same Innoson that is their collective brand.

Charity never begins at home for Igbos. For them it is about hypocritically demanding from others what they themselves cannot give.

Lol. You paranoid people no go kill person sha. When Sanwo Olu announced the 5 year Lagos agricultural road map some weeks back, what was that in response to if not the need to boost Lagos food sufficiency?

Maybe this is just a measure to improve security from a State that has never been a slave of the FG and has not followed the indolent 'Abuja begging bowl' template of the rest of Nigeria since Tinubu took over in 1999.

You IPOBians and Biafrans only know to cause trouble with your ignorance and lack of education.

Why don't you find out the type of firearm Amotekun, a support force for the NPF, is legally empowered to carry before making ignorant noise.
