The Lagos State Police Command says its operatives have arrested three suspected cultists in the Ishashi area of the state.
The command’s spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, told the News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday.
NAN reports that the Commissioner of Police in Lagos, Mr Adegoke Fayoade, had promised to rid the state of criminals.
Hundeyin said the three suspects were arrested on Saturday at about 6.30 am by the police.
“The police got information that some boys were seen in military uniform disturbing the peace of the Oke-Odan community in Ishashi,” he said.
He explained that operatives from the Ishashi division were “quickly drafted” to the community and arrested the suspects who are between the ages of 24 and 39.
