The Deputy Commissioer of poice Mr. Tunji Disu in the early hours of Monday took to his twitter page – @TunjiDisu1 to reveal that his squad have apprehended two alleged young criminals in Oshodi.
According to the DCP the young lads were arrested for attacking two ladies at Oshodi Oke. He explained that one Taofeek and his friends robbed the ladies off their jewelleries.
His tweets reads:
At Oshodi Oke, Taofeek and friends attacked 2 ladies, forcefully removed one of the ladies wedding ring and put it in his mouth and bolted, while Toheeb removed her ears rings, they have both been arrested and handed over to the Makinde Division .
The arrest got many Nigerians talking especially the Oshodi residents, as they took to social media to express their views about the situation.
A lot of his followers also seemed excited about the news as different tales of how they were victims in the hands of the young lads were told.
While other wondered where the young men parents might be, blamed their actions on bad parenting and suggested that the boys go for rehabilitation or be empowered by the government.
I agree that the government should empower these young men, if they had something to do or contribute to the economy of the country in some way, surely these boys would not be out committing crime.
