A group of people suspected to be hoodlums have burnt down the police station situated in Orile-Iganmu Local Government Area of Lagos State.

Eyewitnesses said the incident occurred around 09.45 am.

While the fire raged, no policeman nor members of the fire fighting department were sighted anywhere close to the scene.

It was gathered that the fire was started by some hoodlums in the area, but their reason was still unknown as at the time of this report.

Incidents of hoodlums storming police stations and in some case setting them ablaze have been reported recently, especially in the Edo State axis.

Also, a medium security correctional centre in Benin, the Edo State capital was on Monday attacked by the hoodlums, who reportedly set many inmates of the facility free.

The state government imposed a 24-hour curfew on the state as part of measures to stem further violence in the city.
