The Police on Wednesday arrested 65 party-goers at 84 Park Hotel, Augusto Close, Oko Oba, in Lagos State.

Acting on credible intelligence, operatives from Area G Command and Oko Oba Division stormed the venue.

The suspects were arrested for holding a birthday party amid the COVID-19 lockdown and consuming some substances suspected to be hard/illicit drugs.

Police spokesman, Bala Elkana, in a statement, disclosed some were found in the swimming pool catching fun, in total neglect of the social distancing regulations and the lockdown order.

The suspects who are within the ages of 16 to 45 years, confessed to have left their various homes to the hotel in defiance to the sit at home order.

“The Manager of the hotel is equally arrested and the hotel is sealed off by the relevant agency of the State Government. Investigation is ongoing and the suspects will be charged to Court.

“The Commissioner of Police Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, calls on residents to continue to be law abiding,” the statement added.
