Imohimi Edgal, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police (CP), has paraded suspected armed robbers, cultists and kidnappers arrested during the Christmas and New Year period.

While parading the suspects on Monday at the Lagos State Police Command in Ikeja, the Police commissioner said six young men between the ages of 18 and 25 were arrested on January 2, 2019, at Ajegunle for allegedly dispossessing motorists of their valuables.

The men, Opeyemi Suraju (aged 22), Abdullahi Hammed (aged 18), Abiodun Adegoke (aged 20), Samuel Innocent (aged 25), Basit Makinde (aged 20) and Montunrayo Akeem (aged 23), were accused of being in possession of cutlasses and daggers, when arrested by the policemen at Alakuko Police Station.

Another alleged traffic robber, Faruba Idris, aged 28, was caught in Ejigbo area of Lagos State where he was robbing motorists of their valuables.

“The suspect was immediately searched and a cut-to-size locally-made gun with two cartridges was recovered from him," he said.

In another similar but unrelated case, Edgal claimed one Ayilara Babatunde Sharif informed the Police on December 30, 2018, of a supposed invasion by suspected hoodlums at Ijanikin.

The alleged hoodlums: Israel Okoye (aged 20), Temitayo Ogundayo (aged 19), Azeez Bankole (aged 20) and Abeeb Bamgbopa (aged 22), suspected to be armed robbers were in possession of two toy pistols, a table knife and cello tape

The Police Commissioner also said on Sunday, January 6, 2019, operatives of the command attached to the anti-cultism unit, while on routine patrol, intercepted a Toyota Camry Saloon Car with four occupants who were revealed to be kidnappers.

The men, Ismaila Ebenizer (aged 38) who claimed to be a soldier, Hillary Nwoha (aged 40), Iwuagwu  Joseph (aged 33) and Iwuanyanwu Ifeanyi (aged 60), were found with a pump action rifle.

Edgal added that the command arrested a total of 23 suspected cultists in various parts of the state and recovered 32 live cartridges from them.

On the same day, the CP said the command was alerted “from a credible source that a man was seen moving around Otun Market Square in a suspicious manner, holding a little boy in his hand".

“Based on the information, operatives of the command attached to Okokomaiko Division, moved swiftly to the location and arrested the suspect who gave his name as Sikiru Tanimowo, 37 years old.  The little boy also gave his name as Abu Yusuf, 4 years old.

“The suspect later led detectives to the location where he picked the child. Thus, the Police were able to locate his parents who said they have been looking for the child and have never met the suspect before.”

He said all suspects would be charged to court after the completion of investigations into the various offences.
