Lagos Taskforce raids black spots in Oshodi, arrests 59 suspects

CITIZENS COMPASS– LAGOS State Taskforce has arrested 59 suspected miscreants during a raid of some black spots in the area.

This took place in the wee hours on Tuesday, October 18, 2022 as part of the Agency’s bid to provide safety and security of residents in the state.

The operation which lasted for about four hours was led by the Chairman of the Agency, CSP Shola Jejeloye and was carried out along Oshodi, Mafoluku, Ilupeju Railway crossing and Agege Motor Road after complaints had been received from members of the public about the activities of unscrupulous elements in these areas, mostly at night and in the early hours of the day.

Jejeloye disclosed that 59 suspects were arrested at various locations and have all been properly profiled before charging them to court.

“Lagosians should expect more raids and security operations in the coming weeks until we are able to achieve and maintain zero challenges in the sector of security as encapsulated in the THEMES agenda of the State Government. No stone will be left unturned till all criminal elements are either arrested or flee completely from Lagos State”

The Chairman advised residents in the State to be security conscious and ensure that any security breaches within our neighbourhood are quickly reported to the Agency or to the nearest Police Station. He stated that the aim of achieving a safe, serene and habitable city is a collective effort which requires every Lagosians hand on deck till it is achieved and beneficial to the general populace. It is hightime we knew that an aggression to one is aggression to all, therefore as true Lagosians we must at all times be our brothers keepers to collectively fight the monster called insecurity before it fights us back.
