No fewer than forty-three people have been arrested by security operatives at a club in Lagos State.
Naija News understands that the clubbers, including strippers, were arrested by some men of the state Police Command during a raid at Eclipse Night Club, Ligali Ayorinde Street, Victoria Island.
Confirming the report, the state Police spokesman, Muyiwa Adejobi on Monday evening, January 11 told newsmen that the young men and women were arrested by officers attached to the Maroko Division.
On his part, the state commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, ordered that the suspects be paraded to Taskforce office in Oshodi for prosecution.
