The police says only those found wanting will be prosecuted.
The Ogun State state police command said it arrested 110 suspected criminals in raids on criminal hideouts in the state.
The raid took place on Saturday at Sagamu,Ijebu Ode,Ilaro,Otta and Abeokuta area commands.
The Command Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, who confirmed the development to journalists in Abeokuta, said the police worked on the intelligence gathered from the State Intelligence Bureau on dangerous black spots in the state.
“The efforts of the Ogun State Police Command to rid the State of hoodlums of criminals paid off on Saturday 19th April when all divisions in the command raided black spots in their jurisdictions and arrested almost 110 suspects all over Ogun State,” Mr. Adejobi said.
“The areas where the raids were carried out included Sagamu,Ijebu Ode,Ilaro,Otta and Abeokuta area commands; and the operations were supervised by the Deputy Commissioner in charge Department of Operations, DCP Akpoebi Agberebi,” he added.
“The Command worked on the intelligence gathered from the State Intelligence Bureau of the Command on dangerous black spots in Ogun which propelled the raids and eventually led to the arrest of the suspects,” he stated.
Mr. Adejobi said the raid was a fulfilment of an earlier promise to sustain its raid on black sports where “bad boys” converge to plan and execute their evil acts.
The PPRO said the Ogun State Commissioner of police, Ikemefuna Okoye, has ordered concerned Area Commanders and Divisional Police Officers to screen the suspects properly so that only those found wanting will be charged to court.
