Police arrest 2 with guns, charms in Lagos



Police in Lagos have arrested two suspects, Daniel Ojoh, 20 and Kudus Ahmed, 27, for allegedly being in possession of two locally-made guns and charms.

Police spokesman in Lagos State, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, stated on Wednesday that operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) arrested the suspects in separate incidents at Lekki and at Ojota.

He explained that the suspects were arrested following tip-offs by concerned citizens.

“Upon receipt of credible information, Ojoh was arrested at his workshop in Alagutan on Saturday, Feb. 18 and a locally-made gun with two live cartridges, were recovered from him.

“Ahmed was arrested underneath Ojota Bridge at about 4 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 19 after he was stopped on suspicion by RRS bike riders on patrol.

“A locally-made gun and charms were recovered from him,” he stated.

Hundeyin added that both suspects were assisting the police in their investigations preparatory to arraignment.
