The Lagos State Police Command has announced plans to charge over 1,019 suspects to court on Monday for a range of offenses. 

SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the command's spokesperson, revealed this during a briefing with journalists in Lagos on Sunday. 

According to Hundeyin, the suspects were apprehended between April 8th at 1:15 p.m. and April 14th at 12:50 p.m. during extensive raids of black spots across the state. 

Charges will include possession of arms and ammunition, traffic robbery, assault on civilians, and possession of illicit drugs, among others.
