He said the operation followed complaints from residents and isolated cases of robbery in traffic and harassment in Oshodi area.

The police spokesperson also said the operatives attached to Sagamu Road Division Ikorodu on 19th July 2021 arrested one John Okibe, 36, at Aleje area of Ikorudu for threatening and attempting to rob a POS operator. The suspect, who was arrested with a toy gun, has confessed to the crime.
