The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, has again reiterated the command's commitment to eradicating traffic robbery in Lagos State.

The police boss made this known on Thursday at the Command Headquarters Ikeja while addressing officers and men of Rapid Response Squad (RRS) and other operational units who were deployed at strategic places across the state to combat traffic robbery. 

He emphasised on the need to adopt various anti - crime strategies in tackling the menace, which must not be allowed to jeopardise the security network of the state.

In his brief to the command, the Comnander RRS, CSP Yinka Egbeyemi, confirmed the arrest of additional thirteen (13) suspected traffic robbers by the operatives of Rapid Response Squad (RRS) on Wednesday while lurking around Motorways, Old Toll-Gate and Olusosun Dump site, Ojota, Lagos.
The suspects are: Akeredola Taiwo,m, (33), Oriyomi Solola,m, (28), Olanrewaju Sikiru, m, (25), Hakeem Ridwan, m, (22), Joseph Ovie,m, (33), Muhammadu Aminu,m, (32), Monday Nweke,m, (35), Emmanuel Anthony,m, (24), Onyeka Muoghara,m, (40), Salaudeen Rilwan,m, (32), Kayode Dele,m, (31), Silas Manner,m,(27) and Favour Elijah,m, (26).
Some of the suspects were caught red-handed while taking drugs in their hideouts around the corridor; and they were actually fingered and recognised by the residents and eye witnesses to have been involved in some of the previous traffic robberies and other crimes being perpetrated in the areas.

The suspects would be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) for proper investigation and possible prosecution as instructed by the Commissioner of Police.

CP Hakeem Odumosu however assured the public of the comnand's relentless efforts at eradicating traffic robbery and providing adequate security to lives and property.
