At least four suspected armed robbers have been killed in the last three weeks by police in Lagos.

The state Police Commissioner, Fatai Owoseni, who stated these during a press conference at the command’s headquarters, said 20 different weapons with 30 rounds of live ammunition and 38 vehicles were recovered by the police.

Owoseni said the cultists’ arrest followed intelligence report on their plan to wreak havoc across the state during “their Eight-Eight (August 8) celebration.”

“All police divisions were put on notice leading to their arrest. One of the groups was going to bury a dead colleague but in the process tried to attack Denton Police Station. But the DPO and his men arrested nine of them on the spot and 21 others were later arrested. Two others were at the Shomolu and Bariga axis,” he said.
