The Lagos State Police Command says it has uncovered an illegal brewery at Egbe-Afa in Igbogbo area of Ikorodu, Lagos State, while five suspects have been arrested.
Edgal Imohimi, Lagos State Commissioner of Police, made this known to journalists at the scene on Wednesday.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the illegal brewery was producing malt drinks, stout and ethanol which they pumped into trucks to bottle at another location.
Mr Imohimi said that the suspects would be subjected to further interrogation to know where the drinks were bottled and sold.
He said that the illegal brewery would be sealed and samples of the drinks would be sent to the laboratory for test.
The police chief attributed discovery of the illegal brewery to the efforts of community policing and partnership.
According to him, the people of Lagos are showing increasing confidence in the police.
Mr Imohimi urged residents to know their neighbours, saying that vigilance was the only way to have a crime-free society. (NAN)
