Five notorious miscreants alongside nine prostitutes with illegal drugs were yesterday, arrested around Mile 2/Festac area of #LagosState during an early morning clamp down on illegal brothels by the operatives of the Lagos State Environmental and Special Offences Enforcement Unit (Taskforce). .
The brothel was said to be noted for harboring criminals who rob unsuspecting members of the public of their valuables and also serves as an outlet for the sale of illegal drugs such as Indian hemp, Tramadol, and other sex enhancement drugs, especially to underaged children. .
Also, it had previously been demolished by the Agency during the clearing of illegal structures, shanties and containerized shops from Eric Moore Road down to Trade Fair axis. .
However, the demolished brothel had been re-built by the owner after it was demolished for illegal construction on road setbacks. .
Parading the suspects, the Chairman of the Agency, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi said the raid became imperative following complaints that criminal activities around Mile 2 towards Festac were perpetrated by miscreants who reside in the illegal brothel.
