Oyo State Police command, on Monday, said that it has recovered an AK-47 rifle from a suspected gunrunner who has been terrorising some residents of Oyo and Ogun states.
The command, in a statement made available to Monday morning by its Public Relations Officer, Adewale Osifeso said that the suspect who ran away into a bush was spotted by the operatives attached to the command’s monitoring unit while on aggressive stop and search duty.
He added that the suspect was spotted by the police operatives around 1630 hrs at Bakari, a border village between Oyo and Ogun states.
Osifeso explained that efforts by the Police to arrest the suspect proved to be abortive but some items were recovered from him.
One of the items recovered from the suspect according to the Police Spokesman is an AK-47 rifle with breech number 353913.
He said, “Today being Sunday 2/05/2021 at about 1630HRS, operatives attached to the Command’s Monitoring Unit while on aggressive stop and search duty at Bakari, a border village between Oyo and Ogun have recorded yet another breakthrough in the fight against crime and criminality.
“The suspect spotted the tactical officers while performing their routine intelligence-driven checks from afar before immediately turning his Bajaj Motorcycle to flee.
“In swift response, the Tactical operatives engaged in hot pursuit after the fleeing suspect, into the pathways leading into a nearby forest, an action that led to a sack falling off the back of his bajaj Motorcycle. A cursory look into the content of the sack revealed it was an AK-47 Rifle with breech number 353913.
“Comprehensive investigations are ongoing not only to apprehend the suspect but as well crack down his criminal network and supply chain.
“The Commissioner of Police, Oyo State Police Command, CP Ngozi Onadeko, enjoins the good people of the state to partner with the Police in terms of sharing credible and timely information valuable in curbing criminality and birthing a peaceful Oyo State of our collective dreams.”Oyo/Ogun border
