Police raid black spots, arrest 28 suspected criminals in Lagos


The Lagos State Police Command, on Wednesday, said it arrested 28 suspected criminals after a raid on black spots in the state.

This was disclosed in a statement issued by the command’s spokesman, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu.

The statement said the raid led by the Operations Department of the command was carried out around 8pm last night at Canal Axis in Ago-Ogota Area of the state.

This was in line with the directive of the state Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu, to dislodge hoodlums hiding in shanties across the state.

“During the night raid, a total of 28 miscreants suspected to be criminals who have been pains in the necks of residents of the affected area were arrested and the illegal shanties destroyed.

“The suspects are currently being interrogated and profiled. The Commissioner of Police has vowed to sustain the ongoing raid until the state is completely rid of such undesirable elements,” Ajisebutu said.
