The Lagos State Police Command has beamed his searchlight on armed robbers who terrorised Point of Sale (POS) operators in the state as its operatives attached to Ipaja Division on Friday, January 22, 2021 at about 12:45pm arrested one Korede Anifowose, residing at Omisakin Street, Agbelekale, Abule Egba for attacking one Sola Musa, a POS operator, at Fatolu Bus Stop, Ipaja.

The suspect, Korede and his accomplice, now at large attacked the POS operator but he quickly raised alarm and they were chased by the Anti Crime Police Operatives on pin down at the area before Korede was arrested. 

One locally made pistol and some expended cartridges were recovered from him.

According to the command spokesperson, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi "the command has deemed it necessary to beam its searchlight on attackers of POS operators based on some complaints the command has received on the antics of the criminals who terrorised POS operators and those dealing or transact with liquid cash in the state.

“The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, has mandated Divisional Police Officers to beef up security around those dealing with liquid cash in their businesses as the command can not afford to leave them or anyone in the state unprotected”, Adejobi said.

In another development, the police operatives attached to Area Command Area ‘E’ Festac, on January 19, 2021, at about 12:12am, arrested one David Omoruyi, m, 37, of No 4, Job Street, Afromedia, Otta-Awori LCDA, Lagos in possession of fake Police Identity Card and 30kg of weeds suspected to be Indian hemp.

According to the police, the suspect in company of his fleeing colleagues, were seen with some bags of Indian hemp on their heads at Alaba Rago Market, Ojo Lagos, when the policemen accosted them and eventually arrested David while others fled.

David Omoruyi, it was said claimed he is a serving sergeant attached to Mopol 49, Epe, Lagos State. But after due interrogation and investigation, he confessed to be a fake policeman.

He also confessed that he used to flash the fake ID to gain access and for easy passage of their loots or drugs whenever they are on business.

The state Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu, has directed that the suspects be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, Yaba for discreet Investigation, while their fleeing members be searched for and brought to book with immediate effect.

CP Odumosu also admonished the general public to always avail good and useful information to the police in order to discharge their duties diligently as expected.
