Lagos police arrest 127 suspects for traffic robbery

Police in Lagos have arrested some 127 suspected traffic robbers in different parts of the metropolis in the last three months.

Lagos police commissioner Hakeem Odumosu announced the arrests in an address to officers at the command’s headquarters.

He assured the police was deploying resources to deal with traffic robberies.

“The fight against the menace will be intensified with the new equipment from the Lagos State government,” he said in a statement.

“Robbery in traffic has drastically reduced based on the available empirical figure of the isolated cases of robbery which is not unconnected to the command’s renewed anti crime strategies put in place,” he said.


Meanwhile, Odumosu has ordered the continuation of combat training, musketry and range practice for Police personnel in the command.

He announced the commencement of training for police operatives attached to the newly formed Anti Traffic Robbery Squad to tackle the menace of traffic robbery.

The police boss attributed the success recorded in the fight against crimes in the state to training and re-training of personnel and collaboration with the public and other security agencies.

Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers and Squadron leaders have been undergoing combat training, musketry and range practice since May. (NAN)
