Operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) arrested two bar owners for contravening the lockdown directives of the Federal and Lagos state governments.
The duo was arrested along Isheri/Berger road while on patrol. The routine patrol was led by the squad’s Commander, Olatunji Disu, a Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP).
A statement by RRS on its Facebook account stated as follows, “Commander, Rapid Response Squad (RRS) DCP Olatunji Disu, while on routine patrol last night along Isheri/Berger noticed a bar open and operating fully despite the lockdown order.”
He immediately ordered the arrest of the owner who claimed he was only preparing nkwobi.
“Some of the customers escaped while some who were waiting to finish their bottles were also arrested but were allowed to go with a strong warning.”
Disu warned that the operatives will keep eyes on the spot. He advised people to stay at home to save themselves from contracting Cororavirus.
