Police arrest 520 suspects for arson, vandalism, others crimes in Lagos

 

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, on Tuesday, said at least 520 suspects have been arrested in connection with the series of looting, arson, vandalism, and robbing of unsuspecting members of the public of their valuables during the unrest occasioned by the #EndSARS protest in the state.
Odumosu, who disclosed this during a press briefing at the command headquarters in Ikeja, said the protest was hijacked by hoodlums, adding that the arrested suspects would be charged to court.
While stating the facilities affected in the state, the CP said, “A lot of public and private facilities were set ablaze, our police stations were also burnt and vandalised.
“Based on the incidences, the command swung into action realising that this is no more #EndSARS, where lives and property are lost and vandalised and burnt. We realised that the protest had been hijacked by hoodlums, so we moved in and we were able to recover some of the stolen items and arrested the perpetrators.
“So far, 520 suspects have been arrested for various offences, ranging from arson, robbery, murder, rioting, malicious damage, and unlawful possession of firearms. All the suspects we have arrested are not #EndSARS protesters and they will all be charged.”
