The Lagos State Rapid Response Squad (RRS) have nabbed five suspected Awawa Boys in an all – night raid in spots believed to be the hideouts of the cult gang in Mulero, Orile Agege, Abule Egba and Agege areas of Lagos.
The figure excludes three suspected members who were handed over to the divisional police units in the areas.
Recovered from one of the suspects were wraps of substances believed to be Indian hemp and ice.
Using intelligence gathered as a result of civil disturbances unleashed in Mulero and part of Iyana Ipaja on Tuesday night, the Commander, RRS, Olayinka Egbeyemi who worked on the directives of the new Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, deployed a patrol team to all the affected communities before the night raid on the hideouts of the miscreants.
The suspects would be charged to court as directed by the State Commissioner of Police.
