The Lagos State Police Command has beamed his search light on armed robbers who terrorise POS (Point of Sale) operators in the state as its operatives attached to Ipaja Division on Friday 22nd January, 2021 at about 1245pm arrested one Korede Anifowose, ‘male’, 24, of Omisakin Street, Agbelekale Abule Egba for attacking one Sola Musa, a POS operator, at Fatolu Bus Stop, Ipaja.
The suspect, Korede, and his accomplice, now at large, had attacked the POS operator when he raised alarm and they were chased by the Anti Crime Police Operatives on pin down at the area before Korede was arrested. One locally made pistol and some expended cartridges were recovered from him.
The command has deemed it necessary to beam its search light on attackers of POS operators based on some complaints the command has received on the antics of the criminals who terrorise POS operators and those dealing or transact with liquid cash in the state.
The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, has mandated Divisional Police Officers to beef up security around those dealing with liquid cash in their businesses as the command can not afford to leave them or anyone in the state unprotected.
