A special strike force of the Lagos State Police Command has whupped some criminals after a successful smoking of some black spots for traffic robbers and cultists in the Ikorodu area, a satellite town.

In all, the operatives arrested five suspects, reports Persecondnews.

The operation was carried out following the promise made by Police Commissioner Hakeem Odumosu, recently at an Ikorodu Town Hall meeting to rid the area of criminal elements.

The spokesman for the command, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi said, “The Commissioner of Police’s special squad hit the town on Thursday, around 6pm on sting operations.

“The special squad commanded by the Assistant Commissioner of Police, Operations, comprised operatives of Rapid Response Squad, Task Force, State Intelligence Bureau, Special Anti-Crime Team, Police Mobile Force, Motor and Traffic Division, among others.

“The operations were carried out simultaneously to remove the shanties, blockages and open markets on the roads in the Ikorodu Division, particularly in the Agric area and some other parts of the town, that had been an eyesore and criminal hideouts, with a view to making the town free of gridlock and crimes.

“The squad succeeded in clearing the blockages on the roads, illegal parks and shops, where it arrested five suspected traffic robbers and cultists.

Persecondnews recalls that lkorodu has been the hotbed of violent cultism, rape, banditry and the dislodged “One million Boys”.
