About 100 AK-47 rifles and 2,600 pieces of ammunition are missing as a result of attacks on police formations in Lagos State by hoodlums who hijacked protests, according to the Inspector-General of Police Committee on EndSARS Protest Damage Assessment.

According to the committee, 37 police formations were attacked in Lagos State while 367 vehicles, including 10 Armoured Personnel Carrier, saloon cars and Hilux vans were burnt.

Chairman of the committee, CP Yaro Abutu, disclosed this on Saturday.

Abutu said the team was taking the inventory of property destroyed in police facilities across the country, after which it will submit a report to the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu. ‎‎

Abutu said, “We are taking a tour around the 17 states where burning of police facilities and killing of police personnel occurred.

“Since Lagos is the epicentre we decided to come to Lagos first. Thirty seven police stations were attacked in Lagos and about 30 per cent of the police infrastructure in the state has been crippled.

“Also, a lot of arms and ammunition were carted away. We are still counting and collating. In some police stations, 15 to 30 firearms and a number of ammunition were stolen.

“So far from our preliminary report, about 100 pieces of AK-47 cannot be accounted for and up to 2,600 pieces of ammunition are missing. This is when criminals become more aggressive whereas police equipment has been crippled.”‎

Abutu urged hoodlums in possession of the arms and ammunition to return them to the nearest police station or community leaders.

According to him, three firearms were returned to some police formations on Friday.
