The Lagos State Police Command says it has arrested over 200 suspects for their involvement in the series of looting recorded in the state.

Mr Hakeem Odumosu, who is the Commissioner of Police in Lagos, paraded the suspects and some of the items recovered from them on Tuesday at the Police Headquarters in Ikeja. He explained that personnel of the command deployed on a recovery mission went on a house-to-house search of all looted items in various parts of the state.

The police commissioner stated that the arrested persons took advantage of the #EndSARS protest and got mixed with demonstrators to commit the crime.

He described the #EndSARS protesters as peaceful and well-behaved citizens, noting that it took the police a lot of professionalism before the suspects were arrested.
