One Bamidele Taiwo, 30, has been arrested by officers of the Safer Highway unit of the Lagos State Police Command.
The suspect who was in possession of a firearm was arrested during a routine stop-and-search at an entry point between Lagos and Ogun states in the Alagbado area of Lagos State.
This was disclosed in a statement issued by the Lagos Command Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin.
Hundeyin said, “Two other suspects who were with Bamidele on the same motorcycle took to their heels immediately the police discovered the Chinese-made pistol in their bag.
“While efforts are on to arrest the fleeing suspects, Bamidele and the exhibit have been transferred to the State Headquarters for further investigations.”
