We Know Criminals’ Hideouts On Lagos Waterways – Merchant Navy Chief

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) –  The Training Depot Commander of the Nigerian Merchant Navy Coastal Defence Force, Lagos, Ichuku Agaba, says the force has identified criminal hideouts on  Lagos waterways.

Agaba stated this  in Lagos  that the force was prepared to take battle to the criminal hideouts.

He said also that the group had joined forces with the Nigerian Navy and the Police to check coastal criminals in Lagos.

The Merchant Navy chief said in the last eight months, the force had arrested eight suspected armed robbers around Kosofe waterfront base attacking innocent citizens.

The suspects were handed over to the police for prosecution, he added.

“We carried out surveillance on waterways in Lagos and now know the criminal hideouts.

“We identified them but we lack logistics to carry out arrests. We use locally made boats. We need speedboats for patrols, arms and other equipment.

“We want the government to empower us; we promise that within one week, these criminal elements operating on the waterways in Lagos will be arrested. We have the manpower, but lack logistics.

“I have written to Lagos State government for logistics; if we have the necessary equipment, criminals cannot come from elsewhere to commit crime in Lagos and escape from our men,’’ he assured.
