CITIZENS COMPASS – THE Lagos State Taskforce has arrested 31 miscreants during an early morning raid across some strategic locations in the State.
The Agency said this was done in order to rid the Metropolis of criminal elements who carry out nefarious activities at odd hours.
According to Taskforce, the suspects were arrested at Oshodi, Ilupeju and Mushin while they were lurking in the dark around garages and bus stops, waiting for unsuspecting Lagosians to prey on.
The Chairman of the Agency, CSP Shola Jejeloye who led the operation disclosed that raiding of black-spots and criminal hide outs is an efficient policing strategy which has yielded positive results over the years
“We carry out these raids periodically to curb incidents of traffic robbery, pick pocketing and purse snatching which usually occur at late nights and early hours in the morning. We will carry out more raids and utilize other strategies to ensure that criminal elements have no comfort in the State”.
Jejeloye stated that the suspected miscreants arrested will be screened thoroughly before being charged to court. He sounded a note of warning to anyone engaging in such practices of criminality to desist from such or risk being caught by the long arm of the law.
