Xenophobia: 125 Looters arrested By Lagos Police Command by UncleGist: 8:42pm On Sep 04, 2019
At least 125 looters have been arrested by the Lagos State police command in connection with destruction of properties owned by South Africans in the wake of Xenophobic attack on Nigerians in South Africa.

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Adamu, has also ordered water-tight security around embassies, foreign missions, foreigners and their businesses within the country.

The order is against the backdrop of the unfortunate attack on Shoprite outlets in Lekki area of Lagos Sate on 3rd September, 2019 by some miscreants who attacked and looted the Malls ostensibly under the pretext of protesting against the incessant “xenophobic” attacks in South Africa.

A statement issued by Frank Mba, Force Public Relations Officer, said to this end, all Zonal Assistant Inspectors General of Police and Commissioners of Police across the federation had been placed on red alert to ensure no similar violence is replicated within the country.

The statement said the IGP condemned the violent attacks and noted that three police officers were seriously injured and a Police operational vehicle set ablaze. “He also notes that a total number of One Hundred and Twenty-Five (125) suspects have been arrested in connection with the incident while a good number of looted valuables have been recovered by the Police.

“While recognizing the rights of citizens to air their views on salient national issues as enshrined in our statutes, the Force reiterates that these must be done within the confines of the law. Miscreants and criminally-minded people who masquerade as genuine protesters are therefore warned to stay-off the streets of Nigeria as the Force will not hesitate to bring to bear the full weight of the law on any such law breaker.

“Parents and Guardians are therefore enjoined to prevail on their children and wards to desist from acts capable of causing breakdown of law and order in the country,” the statement said.

According to the statement, the Force had commenced investigations and profiling of the arrested suspects with a view to establishing their connection with the stealing, malicious damage, arson and disturbance of public peace on the day of the incident. “The Force is hereby reassuring all law-abiding citizens, embassies, foreign missions, foreigners and their businesses within the country of their security and safety,” it said.

Nigeria is a very useless country. We worship foreigners too much wheather it's Somalia, Iraqi, Kenyan as long as its a foreigner. How many South Africans have been arrested? This buhari government is very useless and shameless.

Criminals are the greatest beneficiaries of any chaos or civil disobedience.

They should be treated as criminals they are, rather than aggrieved Nigerians carrying out reprisal.

For the people that were supporting Sowore's #revolutionnow , yesterday's mayhem would have been a child's play in comparison with what hoodlums would've unleashed under the guise of the revolution.

Nigeria police force, to what shall I compare thee?
A time will come when even the Nigeria military will not be able to stop the masses. Nigerians are getting more aggressively aggressive by the day.




The Nigeria police are as useless as a woman's menstruation. God punish their fadas
