Police Impounds Large Quantity Of Drugs ,Firearms In Lagos

The Commissioner of Police Lagos State,  CP Edgal Imohimi today 01/03/2018, paraded 255 suspects arrested during a raid at Akala-Mushin and Idi-Oro areas of Lagos State.

The raid of criminal hideouts in these areas became pertinent because of  the brazen nature criminals living amongst the people  attack residents and law enforcement officers with impunity.

Sequel to the above, the CP ordered a raid of identified criminal enclaves in Akala-Mushin and Idi-Oro.  During the raid, these  criminal elements resisted the police by hurling stones and different types of missiles at them, breaking windscreens of some vehicles  parked on the roadsides.

This did not deter the police  from arresting 255 suspects comprising of 246 males and 9 females, seizing 39 big bags of weeds suspected to be Indian hemp and recovering of two pump action rifles and  ammunition in the process. 

The Commissioner of Police vowed that the Command will not rest until drug peddlers, cultists and armed criminals are rid  from the  streets of Lagos.
The Command hereby advises parents, guardians and stakeholders to warn their children and wards to stay off criminal  enclaves and avoid mingling with criminals. The CP added that the raid will continue in all places identified by police intelligence unit as blackspots .

Investigation into the case is concluded  and all arrested criminals have been  charged to court  with the  collaboration of the Directorate of Public  Prosecution.
