Police Raid Black Spots In Lagos, Arrest 720 Suspects by farem: 6:38am On Nov 16
The Lagos State Police Command, on Sunday, carried out simultaneous raids on areas believed to be harbouring criminals and hoodlums, across the 14 area commands in the state.

The command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, in a statement issued in Lagos, said that 720 suspects were arrested, with various weapons and substances suspected to be Indian hemp and cocaine.

“In its bid to solidify the security architecture of the state, the Lagos Command re-launched its anti crime strategies to curb crimes and criminality across the state.

“In the swift operations, police operatives arrested 720 suspects with incriminating items, including locally-made guns, cartridges, charms and substances suspected to be Indian hemp and cocaine.

“Also, some items suspected to have been looted from various shopping outlets within the state during the recent EndSARS violence were found within the suspected criminals,” he said.

Adejobi said that the Commissioner of Police in the state, Hakeem Odumosu, had earlier warned and directed police officers and men to move against lawlessness and criminality in the state.

“Odumosu affirmed the zeal of the command to sustain the operations, even beyond the yuletide season.

“The police chief commended the officers and men of the command for the successful operations, while he urged them to be at alert for more operations across the state,” the police spokesman said.

Adejobi said that Odumosu had also directed the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of SCID, Panti to commence discreet investigation on the arrested suspects for immediate prosecution.

“Odumosu urged those whose items were looted during the recent EndSARS violence to come up for claims of their items, with prove of ownership,” Adejobi said.

Okay, making the arrest presupposes that they were thoroughly investigated. The police should charge them to court immediately. This had better not be a "revenue" drive by the FG through the police. #5,000 bail money x 720 = (do the maths cheesy). I fear the desperation of this current administration when it comes to IGR. grin

Some of the suspects will pay 20000 naira to be free while others will pay as high as 200,000 naira.
What they pay is not my business, but I'm certain the bail money received from the 720 arrested suspects may be enough to rebuild a vandalised Police station in Lagos, but ,sadly it would end in the pockets of independent police officers.

Massive arrests. It's certain 50% of those arrested won't be guilty but they will still pay money to be released

Very Good Job, this is the best way to stop criminality in Lagos.
However they should be charged to court ( No jungle justice please) so that innocents can be seperated.

If the FG is sincere and honest about its total police reform claims, then HUMAN RIGHTS groups should be part of the raids they are doing right now, otherwise same old same old rotten system... I wonder how many innocent people have been arrested among the 720 too. Not everyone staying in a shanty or slum is a criminal or engaged in crime. Some people are homeless, some are poor destitutes. May God defend the poor in the land from oppression.
