​CP orders Task Force to raid 17 ‘black spots’ in Lagos

Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP, Imohimi Edgar has ordered the state’s Task Force to raid 17 ‘black spots’ areas where criminals perpetrate nefarious acts across the state.
Chairman, Task Force, Olayinka Egbeyemi disclosed this on Sunday, saying Edgar had charged the agency to completely eradicate all criminal hideouts/black-spots across the State.
The chairman listed the black spots to include: Egbe-Idimu, Iyana-Ipaja (Abule-Oki & Car-wash), Ikotun, Mushin, Bariga, Apapa, Orile-Agege, Ajegunle, Ikorodu, Lagos-Island, Oshodi, Pen-cinema, Berger, Oyingbo, Mile 2, Fadeyi and Ojuelegba.
Egbeyemi disclosed that the CP had mandated him and other Divisional Police Officers to wipe out all criminal elements from their hideouts across the State.
He stated that the new CP was poised at tackling all criminal challenges and making sure that criminal elements were no longer allowed any free reign in the state.
According to Egbeyemi, the government would not fold its arm and watch criminals destroying huge investment already expended on infrastructural development across the state.
He quoted the CP as warning parents to always monitor their wards, particularly during and after the ‘Ember-months,’ as anyone caught engaging in any criminal acts such as selling/smoking illicit drugs, rape, robbery, cultism or any other nefarious activities would be prosecuted in accordance with Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Laws.
The Chairman enjoined criminal elements to turn a new leaf and get themselves meaningfully engaged in vocational skills such as tailoring, carpentry, shoe-making, electrical/electronics, bead-making, among others at any of the government’s established vocational centres spread across the State.
