It appears that armed robbers may be at crossroads following the decisive action plan taken by the two Commissioners of Police for Ogun and Lagos State Commands recently.
P M.EXPRESS reports that while the Lagos Police boss, CP Hakeem Odumosu, went after the armed bandits terrorizing Lagos residents, his colleague in Ogun State, CP Edward Ajogun, has sounded it clear to criminals that Ogun State is no go area.
CP Ajogun stated that the activities of serial killers, which had been claiming lives persistently within Ijebu–Ode and its environs, will soon be things of the past, as he has declared total war against criminality.
