EndSARS: Lagos To Prosecute 229 Suspects For Statewide Disorder.

The Lagos State Government has announced that it is working closely with the State Police Command to bring 229 suspects who were arrested in connection with the mayhem that degenerated from the #EndSARS protest to justice.

Hoodlums masquerading as protesters hijacked the peaceful protests to perpetrate their evil agendas which soon spread like wild fire across the state.

The suspects, totaling 229, were arrested by the Police for various criminal offenses ranging from arson, murder, stealing, malicious damage of private and public properties and assault before and after the Statewide curfew imposed by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to restore law and order in the state.

The Lagos State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Moyosore Onigbanjo, SAN, disclosed that the State Director of Public Prosecution, Mrs. Olayinka Adeyemi has gone round relevant Police formations with a team of Prosecutors to evaluate files of the suspects, to determine those that will be prosecuted or let off the hook.

The Attorney-General called on Lagosians to maintain peace, law and order in their respective communities, pledging the commitment of the present administration to uphold the rule of law at all times.

He also assured Lagosians that after the conclusion of the evaluation exercise, those who are found to be guilty will be arraigned before the Courts
