With a view to fulfilling his promises and determination to assist the government in curbing land grabbing within the zone the Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of zone 2 command,Lagos, AIG Abdulmajid Ali,has directed the Anti-Kidnapping Team of the zone to prosecute some suspected land grabbers who were arrested in Lagos on 1st of October,2016.
The AIG,who had been duly informed of the activities of some land grabbers at Orudu, Oke Olokun Village, Ibeju Lekki Local Government Area, of Lagos State,detailed and dispatched a team of Anti Kidnapping Unit, Zone 2 Command Headquarters to the scene to restore normalcy and apprehend any individuals that engaged in such unacceptable act. On arrival, the team accosted a group of hoodlums suspected to belong to two rival land “warriors” who were posed to attack each other. However the timely arrival of the police team salvaged the situation which would have resulted to loss of lives and wanton destruction of property of innocent members of the affected communities.
At the scene,the team arrested one Ibrahim Oduola,m,found hanging a bag on his neck. Upon searching the bag, two battle axes, two sharp knives, some assorted dangerous charms, and other items were recovered. The suspect confessed that he went with other members of his gang, with the recovered dangerous items,to Oke Olokun Village to repel attacks from the rival group. Oduola’s arrest led to the arrest of two other suspects — AbdulAfeez Oduola,m, and Joseph Akintunde,m.
The suspects have all been charged to court as directed by the Assistant Inspector-General of Police on Wednesday(today).
The police boss,who frowns at land grabbing or land speculation,will not relent on making the zone though for any individual or group of persons who promote such illegal and inhuman acts within the zone,henceforth,while he urged the vernal public to report any act of land grabbing to his office for necessary action.
