Tuesday, January 22, 2019 would have been a bad day for an unnamed businessman.

But thanks to the patrol policemen from Alausa Police Station for their vigilance.

The patrol policemen on a motorbike, were on street patrol duty along Billings way, Oregun, Lagos when they sighted two men.

Suspecting some irregularity, they approached the men for routine check; but rather than subject themselves to security scrutiny, they took to their heels.

The police riders chased after the fleeing men and arrested one of them.

During a brief interrogation, he gave his name as Ifeanyi Owoh.

He narrated that their mission in the industrial estate was to rob a business man whom they learnt was in town for a transaction with a notable automobile company in the area.

When searched, one locally made pistol, three live cartridges and a dagger were recovered from him.

The police have now intensified efforts to arrest his fleeing accomplice.

The Lagos Police Commissioner found the feat impressive and has commended the Anti-Crime Unit of Alausa Police Division for their proactiveness.

He also urged other divisions in the state to ensure they dominate criminal elements in their areas of responsibility in order to maintain the low crime rate in the state.
