21 Cultists Arrested In Lagos

Oluwapelumi Fasoyin, Lagos

Operatives of the Lagos State Environmental and Special Offenses (Enforcement) Unit, have arrested 21 notorious miscreants and cultists.

The operatives also known as Taskforce apprehended the suspects during a raid on criminal hideouts in Lagos.

The Chairman of the Lagos State Task Force, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi, who led the enforcement team, disclosed that the suspects were arrested at Ogudu and Ajah as directed by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu.

"During the enforcement exercise, a large number of miscreants and cultists launched a serious attack on the officers with broken bottles, stones, axes and other dangerous weapons from different spots, including uncompleted buildings”.

He however disclosed that some of the gangs escaped arrest during the operatives raids.

Egbeyemi explained that residents in Ogudu and Ajah have lodged numerous complaints about the daily attacks on innocent members of the public by these miscreants and cult gangs, especially in the early hours of the day and late at night.

He warned owners of structures harbouring criminal elements to immediately flush them out as the government would not hesitate to demolish any building occupied by miscreants and cultists across the State.

He, however, said that the Lagos State Commissioner of Police CP Hakeem Odumosu has instructed that all the 21 arrested persons be prosecuted.
