The Ogun state police command has arrested 150 suspects over robberies in parts of the state.


Some persons had looted shops in Ado Odo, Ota and Ifo local government areas of the state during the weekend.

In a series of tweets on Sunday, Dapo Abiodun, governor of Ogun, said 150 suspects had been arrested in relation to the recent crimes in the state.

The governor said his administration will give no room for criminality to thrive, adding that maximum punishment will be enforced if needed to end crimes in the state.


He commended the state security operatives, saying his administration would continue to support them in carrying out their duties.

“I am glad to announce that the Ogun State @PoliceNG Command has arrested about 150 suspects in relation to the recent spate of crimes which caused tension for residents within the Agbado Ijaiye, Sango, Ijoko and Ifo axis,” the tweet read.

“I have always stated that I will not tolerate crime under any guise, and this was why I immediately directed the Command and other relevant agencies to promptly move with full force against the criminals perpetrating the acts of terror, when I was briefed.


“Our Government refuses to accommodate any criminal in the State, and I will ensure that any criminal caught will be dealt with ruthlessly. Going forward, criminals will not be spared from the maximum punishment permissible by law, if that is what would curb a recurrence.

“I commend the agencies for their swift response and effective arrests, which have now returned order to the areas. Meanwhile, we will continue to provide necessary support to the Armed Forces to curb crimes not only in these areas but across the State.

“I enjoin law-abiding residents to continue with their usual activities, comply with the stay-at-home directive, and maintain distancing and hygiene recommendations, as we all fight the #COVID19 spread in our dear State.”


Suspected hoodlums had also broken into shops and some houses in Alimosho and Ifako-Ijaiye local government areas of Lagos state.
