Fahm said the number of CCTV cameras installed is increasing day by day. He said 100 CCTV cameras had already been installed in Ikeja area of the state.

The Commissioner noted that upon completion, the project would advance Lagos state economy by becoming a 24-hour driven commercial centre. By the virtue of this, it would allow companies to operate in a safe, secure and smart environment that would create more jobs and increase Gross Domestic Product of the state.
