The police in Lagos have arrested a middle-aged man whose gang has been terrorising members of the public with toy gun in Ikeja area of Lagos.
The Lagos Police Spokesperson, Mrs Ngozi Braide, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday, that the suspect was arrested on Thursday.
He said the suspect and others now at large, attempted to carry out their criminal activities at the Police Officers’ Wives Association (POWA) Market, Alausa, when a team of police men who had been on their trail, arrested the suspect.
``They attempted to use the toy gun on the operators of a business centre at POWA market.
``They had earlier stolen one Blackberry phone at another business centre in the same market and the exhibit was recovered from the suspect,’’ Braide said.
The spokesperson advised members of the public, particularly business centres and offices to be security cautious, urging them to report strange movements to the police.
She called on members of the public to employ community policing in their areas by watching over their neighbours’ houses, offices or business centres.
``People should report to the police when they see strange movement or unwanted gathering around their neighbour's houses or offices. You never can tell, the attack can be extended to your family members.’’
Braide said that the suspect had been transferred to the State CID, Panti, Yaba, for investigation to enable the police to arrest the others.
