Indiscrimate police raid in lagos

Between 7 and 8 pm yesterday friday August 23, police officers in two hillux vans bearing Gowon Estate Police Division raided a public drinking spot (Onome’s joint) at Akowonjo. They ordered all customers numbering about 9 into their vans and drove their captives towards Okunola/Egbeda and made more arrests of people drinking in other open bars. They eventually drove all of them totalling about 20 to Mosalasi police station, Alimoso LG and demanded money from them for ‘bail’. The Lagos Police command is called upon to investigate this criminality and put an end to unlawful police raids and indiscriminate arrests and extortion.
