Police Raid Black Spots In Oshodi, Arrest 103 Hoodlums

Recover Suspected Drugs, Dangerous Weapons

By Godwin Akomah 

The Lagos State Police Command have raided some black spots in the State, specifically Oshodi Oke and Oshodi Under Bridge, and arrested One Hundred and Three hoodlums in possession of dangerous weapons.

The coordinated raid occurred on 19th and 20th July, 2021 ostensibly to sweep the spots of hoodlums and miscreants likely to create security threats and attack unsuspecting Lagosians during and after the Eid-El Kabir celebration.

Also, the police operatives attached to Sagamu Road Division Ikorodu on 19th July, 2021, at 1.30pm, arrested one JOHN OKIBE, 36, at Aleje area of Ikorudu for threatening and attempting to rob a POS operator. 

The suspect was arrested with a toy gun and had given useful information in connection with the crime, according to the Lagos State Police Command Police Spokesman, Muyiwa Adejobi.

Adejobi also noted that the arrest of 103 other hoodlums followed the directives of Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, that the Tactical Commanders and Commanders in charge of the Rapid Response Squad and Taskforce, should  go after hoodlums and miscreants hibernating in black spots.

On the strength of the Commissioner's of Police instruction, the Commander Taskforce and team embarked on the raid of Oshodi area of Lagos State and arrested the suspects, recovered drugs and weeds suspected to be Indian hemp and dangerous weapons.

The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, due to some complaints received and isolated cases of robbery in traffic and harassment at Oshodi area, has ordered the Commander RRS, CSP Yinka Egbeyemi and Commander Taskforce, CSP Sola Jejeloye, to consistently raid and police Oshodi area and other identified areas that are vulnerable to attacks. 

The Commissioner of Police has therefore ordered that the hoodlums be charged to court accordingly as the command plans more raids of such black spots in the state. CP Hakeem Odumosu also charged other tactical Commanders to go after hoodlums and miscreants in the state in order to get the state rid of crimes and criminality.
