A total of 229 suspects arrested by the Police for various criminal offences ranging from arson, murder, stealing, malicious damage of properties before and after the statewide curfew imposed by Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, will appear in court on Monday.

The Lagos State Government said it would be prosecuting the suspects who allegedly took advantage of the EndSARS protest to destroy and loot public and private properties in different parts of the state.

Hoodlums hijacked the peaceful protest of youths against brutality by operatives of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) and other police personnel tagged #EndSARS to wreak havoc and disturb the peace in the state

The State Director of Public Prosecution, Mrs Olayinka Adeyemi has gone round relevant Police formations with a team of prosecutors to evaluate files of those arrested by the police with a view to determine those that have prima facie cases made against them.

Adeyemi said after the evaluation exercise, those that have cases to answer would be arraigned before the Courts on Monday, while the release of those who have no case to answer would be ensured.
