Lagos police (RRS unit) recently arrested 14 males and one female suspect for traffic robbery in Ketu (Alausa) and Oshodi areas
According to CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, this successful arrest of the 15 traffic robbery suspects was made possible by a recent 4-day surveillance exercise of the Lagos police on several black spots in Ketu (Alausa) and Oshodi. He said these areas were specifically targeted by the RRS because they were known to be hotspots for many of the evil perpetrators who regularly rob commuters, motorists and travellers. CSP Adejobi stated in his report that his men rounded up the 15 suspects between 10.45 pm on January 29 and 4.30 am on January 30 around the Alausa and Oshodi-Oke parts of Lagos state.
The suspected female traffic robber was reportedly arrested somewhere at Ikola-Ipaja Bridge alongside a male accomplice at about 11.20 pm on Wednesday 27th of January 2021. Few days after that time, the RRS then arrested 13 other male suspects with different locally-made weapons, stolen phones and several other incriminating items at different parts of Lagos state. News reports claim that the Lagos state commissioner of Police has ordered that the suspects be taken to the SCIID (State Criminal Investigation & Intelligence Department) in Panti, Yaba.
