A wanted thug, Tolani Yusuf, is now in police custody after he was arrested by the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) of the Lagos State Police Command.
NEWSCASTARS.COM gathered from Eagle Online reports that Yusuf is the head of ‘O strong’, a notorious group that has been terrorizing residents of Lagos Island areas.
The gang leader and his boys are accused of perpetrating a series of crimes, including robberies and murders.
The police launched a fresh manhunt after Yusuf recently slashed one Tajudeen Sodiq’s stomach. with the victim’s intestine visibly showing before he ran away after some youths overpowered him and forced the knife out of his hand.
Yusuf was said to have boasted that he would only spend three months in police detention because he works for politicians.
Recall that Lagos Island is reputed for having a high number of miscreants. In January, two days of bloody clashes in Idumota, Kosoko, Oluwole, Martins and Balogun crippled business activities.
The Lagos government directed the police to find and prosecute the masterminds but less than one week later, Azeez Adekunle Lawal (Kunle Poly) Prince Idowu Onikoyi Johnson and Agboola Akeem Kosoko were arrested.
A Yaba Chief Magistrate’s Court ordered that Lawal, a National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) leader, and others be remanded at the Police Zone 2 Headquarters, Onikan.
