The police has given a robust response to the suspected armed robbers who vowed to attack residents of Ikorodu area of Lagos this festive season.
Weeks ago, a said gang which called itself “Team 13” vowed to attack Dejuwogbo, an area around Ota Ona going towards Itamaga, before, during and after Christmas Day.
On Christmas Eve, the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) deployed officers to Ikorodu and its environs to ensure security this Yuletide.
The police team was lead by RRS commander CSP Yinka Egbeyemi.
