The Lagos State Police Command on Friday paraded 27 suspected criminals for various offences ranging from cultism to murder and pipeline vandalism.
According to the Police spokesman, Benjamin Hundeyin, the suspects were arrested in different parts of the state.
He explained that the 27 suspects, among them a female alleged to have aided and abetted her lover in crimes relating to cultism, were part of the achievements of the command the last three weeks.
Hundeyin said: “We present to you today some of our achievements in the fight against crime and criminality within Lagos State in the past three weeks or thereabout.

“Before you today we had a total of 27 suspects who have engaged in varying crimes, including armed robbery, murder, cultism, vandalism, among others.
“From all these cases, which we successfully cracked, we recovered a total of six arms, 12 live ammunition, one knife, two motorcycles, one vehicle and sim cards.”
The image manager said most of the suspects were involved in violent crimes, majorly cultism.
Hundeyin described cultism as the greatest current challenge, urging parents and guardians to do more where their children and wards were concerned.
