Lagos Police Arrest Youths For Burning Abandoned Police Vehicle
On Thursday, August 16, 2018, some youths from Olumokun community in Amukoko area of Ajegunle, engaged the youths of Layinka street, Ajegunle, in a free for all fight on the streets of the sprawling community.
Weapons of various descriptions were freely used by the hoodlums during the clash.
In the commotion, policemen from Ajeromi Police station, Ajegunle, quickly intervened but under a strict warning from the Commissioner of Police, CP Edgal Imohimi, not to use their firearms.
However, according to the police PRO, Chike Oti, the youths of Olumokun community, Amukoko while retreating, stumbled on a disused police patrol car parked under the bridge at Layeni and set it ablaze.
To avoid reprisals, the Commissioner of Police directed the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of operations to engage the traditional heads (Bale) of the various communities in Ajegunle in dialogue to ensure that the peace in the area is no longer breached by hoodlums masquerading as youths.
But trust the police not to overlook the damage done to their property. We have now been told that 20 youths have been arrested in the Amukoko Ajegunle incident.
The CP then warned that henceforth attempts to burn police property will be viewed as arson and the police might be forced to use maximum force to prevent that from happening.
The area has since been calm while a contingent of policemen from the Police Mobile Force and Op Mesa are on ground to ensure security.
