Lagos Police Station set on fire by rampaging Youths
There was chaos at the Oregun area of Ikeja, Lagos on Monday as irate youths invaded and burnt down a police post located on Olayiwola Close, in the area.
According to The PUNCH, the youths injured a policeman on duty during the attack, whose cause could not be ascertained as of press time.
The newspaper reported that the injured policeman has been rushed to the emergency centre at the toll gate along the Lagos Ibadan Expressway for prompt treatment.
It was learnt that while the station was on fire, officials of the Lagos State Fire Service were contacted and mobilised to the scene to salvage the situation.
The fire was put out but part of the building of the police post was affected. However, no weapon was stolen.
Confirming the attack, the state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, when contacted, said an investigation into the case had commenced, adding that “no suspect had been arrested.”
Meanwhile, two suspected members of the Yoruba Nation were arrested during an attempt to take over the Alausa Police Station in Ikeja on Sunday.
During the invasion, the agitators, numbering about 15, while on the premises, brought out their phones and started recording the station and themselves chanting, “No more Nigeria police again”, “Yoruba Nation has taken over in Yoruba land.”
