We are still on trail and the command will not relent in ridding the state of criminal element.

A bungalow where some arms and ammunition were recovered will be demolished or taken over as the command is working with the office of the Attorney General of lagos state to that effect.

We enjoin residents to  do a whistle blowing on the wanted kidnapper, Evans as anyone who gives information about his whereabouts will be handsomely rewarded.
We will break the gang he said.

Owoseni also used the medium to appeal to medical practitioners and hospital managements to treat victims of gun shot injuries or any other serious wounds.

“Don’t let victims of gun shot die while waiting for police report.
Police report is not a prerequisite to treating gun shot injuries.
While treating the patient, you should contact the police.
