The role of the Committee as at that time was to sensitize and educate residents of Lagos state and its environs on enemy attacks and how to save themselves from danger of war. At the time, the Federal Capital Territory was at Lagos and many of its residents and those in its environs are said to hitherto have had next to no knowledge of war and how to protect themselves against it.
