Lagos State Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, had said Lagos was working with its counterpart in Ogun to effort the arrest of suspected persons.

The Ogun State Government in a statement by Subair later said, “The attention of the Ogun State Government has been drawn to incidences of violence, alleged robberies and related crimes resurfacing in the State, especially in the Sango-Ifo axis. “The government has not only moved swiftly into action, the affected towns including but not limited to Sango, Ijoko, Ifo, among others are currently under substantial security surveillance. The Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has communicated all relevant agencies and mandated them, especially the State Police Command, to ensure law and order in all the affected areas. The government had earlier seen to the arrest of some suspects, as carried out by the Police, is in connection with the chain of unrest in the affected localities. Initial arrests notwithstanding, the State Police Command is not leaving any stone unturned as the command arrested more suspects, and an investigation is currently ongoing as suspects in custody continues to provide helpful information”.
