SARS Raid: Women Protest for the Release of their Children in Ajegunle

Mothers took a protest to the Tolu Police Station to demand for the unconditional release of their Children and wards who have been illegally arrested by the police.

According to residents of Apapa Ajegunle popularly called AJ City, there is a new squad of police in town which is a combination of regular police and SARS personnel whose sole objective is to extort the public.

However, some people who are members of the community said the operation are in town to curtail the activities of young adults who specialise in street fight in which the motif behind it is to rob residents and destroy property. The issue now is that the police too are preying on the chance to carry out dirty business.

The protesting mothers alleged that the police knows those that are fighting but will rather arrest innocent people on the street particularly youths.

One of them categorically said that the men are friends with the disturbing youth, they knows each other very well, that they sometimes ask them to disturb the peace of the area so they, the police, can operate and arrest responsible youths whose parents have money for bail.

The report said that whenever there is fight, the police usually comes around to disperse the boys, then they will go from door to door, force their way in and take away their innocent male children under the watch of the parents. They do take 10,000 naira for bail according to the aggrieved mothers.

The streets mostly affected by the clash and police threat are Oguntimehin, Aminatu, Alhaji Salawu, Mogaji, Omowale, Tomoloju, Oyewole among others. All in Tolu.

Besides the streets listed above, the operation are making illegal raid all over Ajegunle at night and the broad day light. This development is causing panic in residents; the fear of police and boys.

The women plead with the DPO to provide a lasting solution to the menace or the women will do their worse.
