Police operatives in Lagos have arrested 32 suspected criminals in the state.

The spokesman for the state police command, Benjamin Hundeyin, who paraded the suspects at the command headquarters in Ikeja on Thursday, said they include 17 cultists, 11 traffic robbers, two armed robbers, and two impersonators.

He added that two of the suspects belonged to a gang using police uniforms to kidnap young men driving flashing cars and labelling them as Yahoo Boys.

The suspects, according to him, were arrested at Oshodi while acting as traffic managers and attempting to arrest a woman for an alleged traffic offence.
