Among those arrested were youths who hijacked the restriction on vehicular and human movements to turn most streets of Lagos into football pitches. Others were a group of persons on the exercise routine.

This is just as 13 vehicles were impounded today by operatives of the Rapid Response Squad, RRS in Alapere area of the State, over the same offense.
