Two hundred and twenty-nine suspected hoodlums have been arrested by the Lagos State Ministry of Justice due to their alleged involvement in looting across the state.

The ministry in a statement released through the Director of Public Affairs, Kayode Oyekanmi, noted that it would prosecute suspects involved in looting of public and private properties.

“The Lagos State Director of the Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP), Mrs Olayinka Adeyemi, has gone round relevant Police formations with a team of prosecutors to evaluate files of those arrested by the police with a view to determine those that have cases made against them.”

“So far, 229 suspects have been arrested by the police for various criminal offences ranging from arson, murder, stealing, malicious damage of properties and assault before and after the state-wide curfew.”

“Also, the Lagos State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr Moyosore Onigbanjo (SAN), has called on Lagosians to maintain peace, law and order in their respective communities.”

“He also said that the government is committed to upholding the rule of law at all times,” the statement said.

The ministry added that after investigation, those who were involved in breaking down of law and order would be arraigned before the courts on Monday, Oct. 26, while those without cases would be released.
