The Lagos State Police Command says its operatives have raided some back spots in the state and arrested 28 suspected criminals.

A statement issued by the command’s spokesman, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu on Wednesday said the command, in a well-coordinated, intelligence-led and purposeful operation, carried out a raid on notorious black spots at Canal Axis in Ago-Ogota area of the State at about 8.00pm last night.

He said the operation, led by the Operations Department of the Command, was in line with the earlier directive of the Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu, that all hoodlums hibernating in shanties as cover before carrying out their clandestine, and nefarious acts should be completely dislodged in every part of the State.

“The suspects are currently being interrogated and profiled. The Commissioner of Police has vowed to sustain the ongoing raid until the State is completely rid of such undesirable elements,” Ajisebutu said.
