No fewer than 100 rifles were lost by the Lagos State Police Command during the End SARS crisis in the state.
A senior officer who worked in one of the police stations in area F of the Command disclosed this in a short chat with a correspont.
The officer who wished to be anonymous, however, commended the State Police Commissioner, Hakeem Odumosu for making efforts to recover the weapons.
He also disclosed that some of the weapons have been recovered from some of the hoodlums who attacked police stations.
According to the source, “About 100 riffles were stolen from the Lagos State Police Command.
“The weapons included some of those the police was formerly using and those given to NDLEA operatives.
“The Commissioner has made a lot of efforts which has led to recovering the weapons, though some are still missing”.
When contacted the Lagos State Police Command, SP Olamuyiwa Adejobi, however, said he was unaware of the report.
“I’m not aware of such report, thank you,” Adejobi said.
Recall that the Lagos State Police Command suffered serious hit in the wake of the violence that occasioned the End SARS protest.
Several police stations were burnt down while some officers were reportedly killed during the incident.
