Just In: Police arrest 43 “no salary’’ gang members, recover arms

The Operation Crush of the Lagos State Police Command has arrested 43 suspected members of a notorious “No Salary’’ gang terrorising residents of Ikotun in Lagos.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the command, DSP Bala Elkana, who disclosed this to newsmen on Thursday, added that 9 locally-made pistols were recovered from the suspects.

He assured that the raid will continue until the hoodlums were fully uprooted from the area and the state in general. “Operation Crush has arrested 43 no salary boys over the last few days and have recovered 9 locally-made pistols.

“The operations will continue until they are totally uprooted,” he said.   The no salary gang is a group of young men and women who usually gather at Council Bus-Stop, Ikotun where they terrorise pedestrians and motorists.

Some eyewitnesses of the activities of the notorious gang members narrated their ordeal to NAN.
