The Commissioner of Police in Lagos State Hakeem Odumosu on Wednesday warned cultists and criminal gangs to either renounce their groups or face the law.
Odumosu gave the warning while speaking at the Lagos State Police Command Headquarters, Ikeja.
“Let me therefore use this medium to sound a warning to members of those gangs and cult groups to either renounce their membership or be prepared to face the full weight of the law,” Odumosu said.
Odumosu disclosed that the police command has put in necessary strategies to eradicate activities of cult groups and other criminals.
The police commissioner said the command has launched a “Special Strike Force on social miscreants to effectively combat those miscreants who have chosen the wrong path of life.”
Odumosu said various criminal activities have been observed over the last two months which the police force will not condone.
He said that the Lagos State Police Command has arrested 114 armed robbery suspects and successfully foiled 72 armed robbery attempts from November 2019 to January 2020.
