The strategies put in place by the Lagos state police command towards nipping in the bud the current crimes of traffic robberies in the state have started yielding results.
In essence, a distress call by a victim of motor traffic robbery at Osborne area of Ikoyi, at about 18:00 hrs on Monday, 2nd November, 2015, which was promptly responded to by a team of Anti-Robbery Squad stationed at Ikoyi Police Division led to the arrest of Owolabi Oyewumi ‘m’, Lekan Azeez ‘m’ and Afolarin ‘m’ in whose possession one motorcycle (Bajaj Boxer) was recovered.
Also on Tuesday,3rd November 2015, the Tactical Operational Point (TOP) mounted by the operatives of Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) accosted two motorcycles with two occupants each moving menacingly at Iyana Oba Bus-Stop. Immediately the operatives forced the motorcycles to a halt, all the occupants jumped into the swamps abandoning the motorcycles and bags which when opened led to the recovery of the following items: two motorcycles, one pump action gun, two live cartridges, twenty two assorted hand phone, one laptop and a camp-coder Camera.
The owners of the recovered properties mentioned above have identified them for possible collection while effort is on to track down the fleeing hoodlums.
