“The latest operations, carried out in the most professional manner without infringement on the rights of Innocent and law-abiding citizens, was in further compliance with the directive of the Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu.
“The aim is to take the fight to the doorsteps of criminals, miscreants and rid the state of the anti-social elements whose stock – in -trade is causing undeserved pain and losses to innocent residents of Lagos State,” he said.
