Chairman of Lagos State Neighborhood Corps (LSNC), Israel Ajao, on Monday, paraded a gang of suspected criminals who were arrested at Tafawa Balewa Square, during a prayer session organized by The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).
He solicited for the support and cooperation of residents in order to achieve a safer and secure Lagos.
“With the cooperation of the members of the church, two members of the suspected gang were apprehended and taken to the Corps custody for interrogation.
”The interrogation led to the arrest of four other members of the gang, whose identity were made known by the two suspects earlier arrested.
”They all confessed to have been involved in activities of pick-pocketing, stealing and burglary in Lagos Island Area,” Ajao told newsmen.
Ajao added that LNSC was not established to harass anyone but to protect all and sundry in line with the policy of the present administration in the state.
”Therefore, all law abiding citizens should continue to go about their lawful businesses without any fear”.
