The Lagos State Police Command has released 123 persons that were intercepted along Moshalashi road, Agege alongside 48 motorcycles that were coming from Jigawa State.
DSP Bala Elkana, the Police Public Relations Officer, disclosed this in a statement on Saturday.
He said that the vehicle and passengers were searched but nothing incriminating was found.
Elkana said, “They were profiled with a view to ascertaining who they were, where they come from, their background and their mission in Lagos.
“They all came from Jigawa State, North West Region of Nigeria and are mostly artisans, commercial motorcyclists and traders.
“Some of them are already based in Lagos with their families while others are coming for the first time. They are in the state in pursuit of greener pasture.”
He said that the Police was satisfied with their legitimate mission in the State and allowed them to proceed to their various destinations.
Elkana said that the Lagos Police Command would not relent on its efforts to protect the lives and properties of the good people of Lagos State.
