Lagos Will Be Unfriendly To Criminals -Gov. Sanwo-olu

Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Lagos State Governor, personally detained a group of suspected criminals who specialize in attacking motorists and road users in traffic on Monday morning in the Ojota region of the state while they were in the act.

Sanwo-Olu caught the suspects while attempting to rob a driver near Ojota in-bound Alausa, ratcheting up the fight against criminality in Lagos and walking the talk.

Help came in the form of a passing Governor's convoy, which halted the robbery attempt and rescued the victim from the three machete-wielding thugs who were attempting to physically take him out of his vehicle.

On the instruction of Sanwo-Olu, the governor's security forces descended on the suspects and seized the lethal weapons from them, detaining the three of them in the process.

After the arrest of the suspect, Sanwo-Olu remarked that the operation was a strong warning signal to other criminal elements and potential traffic robbers in Lagos that there is no safe haven for them and their likes in the state.

In his statement, the governor said, "as our own contribution to long-term national security, we are resolved to stabilize the security situation in Lagos State,”

“Let me also take this occasion to issue a warning to all armed robbers, kidnappers, cults, bandits, and other criminals functioning in Lagos State or planning to operate here: we will leave no stone unturned in making this State unfriendly to you.

“We'll find you, wherever you're hiding, and we'll bring the whole force of the law to bear on you.”
