The Lagos State Taskforce has carried out an early morning raid across strategic locations in the State in order to rid the metropolis of hoodlums who carry out nefarious activities at odd hours of the day.

The suspects, numbering 31 were arrested in Oshodi, Ilupeju and Mushin lurking in the dark around garages and bus stops, waiting for unsuspecting Lagosians to prey on.

The Chairman of the Taskforce, 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,” he said.

Jejeloye stated that the suspected miscreants arrested would 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.
