Police operatives attached to Surulere Division have arrested four members of a syndicate who specialise in vandalising and selling vehicle parts.
The suspects, according to the Police Public Relations Officer, Lagos State Command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, were arrested on Wednesday, September 7, 2022, after a report was received that three Mercedes Benz SUVs brought in for repairs at a mechanic workshop were vandalised and their brain boxes and oil pumps stolen.
“The suspects, Sodiq Odugbade ‘m’ aged 20, Aliyu Yusufa ‘m’ aged 20, Ayinla Aliaminu ‘m’ aged 21 and Ayomide Ogunshiyi ‘m’ aged 18, who were mechanic apprentices in the neighbourhood, have given useful information to the police. Efforts are on to arrest the receivers of these stolen items. Arrested suspects have since been arraigned,” he said.
The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi, assures Lagosians of the relentless efforts of officers and men of the command to bring crime to the barest minimum.
