The Police operatives attached to Ojo Division of the Lagos State Police Command, on 8th April, 2021, at about 1.50pm, arrested 2 suspects for breaking into the warehouse of one Mr Chidi Okonkwo at Shop C1, Ifelodun Section, Alaba Market, Lagos State and stealing goods worth three million naira (#3,000,000)

The suspects, Nnanji Emmanuel, m, 33, of Jakande Street, Ajamgbadi, Lagos and Christian Chukwu,m, 32, of Ilaje Area, Ajamgbadi, Lagos, broke into the warehouse, stole the goods and called on a carrier (labourer) in the market, Bashiru Bala, m, to assist in evacuating the goods before Bashiru, who knows the owner of the warehouse, called his attention to the incident. The owner raced to the warehouse in company of some market security men and the police, and the suspects were arrested. The stolen items were recovered from them.

The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, has therefore urged lagosians to be their brother’s keeper and protect their lives and property against theft and malicious damage as the concept of esprit de corps must be exhibited to defend one another in our society.

CP Hakeem Odumosu also reiterated his commitment to incorporate every stakeholder and sector into the security architecture of Lagos State for better protection of lives and property and general safety of the state.
