According to a statement signed by the command’s Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, said: “At about 6:30 pm on Sept. 17, the command received a distress call from residents in the area that unknown hoodlums were engaging themselves and parading dangerous weapons at Evans street Lagos Island.

“Upon the information received, police operatives from the command trailed the suspects to their hideout at Federation Hotel located at Andrew street Lagos Island.

“Eight suspects were arrested and useful information of one Rasak Olalekan Kareem a.k.a Falapa; 25 who is believed to be the gang leader of the ‘Eye’ cult was obtained.

“The Lagos state police command is hereby using this medium to declare Rasak Olalekan Kareem a.k.a Falapa wanted and if seen anywhere, he should be apprehended and handed over to the nearest police station.

‘’Meanwhile, all suspects arrested so far would soon be charged to court”, the spokesman said.
