Police Uncover Weapons Used By Robbers In An Apartment At Ilasamaja, Lagos
Vanguard revealed that the Divisional Police Officer in-charge of Ilasamaja Division, Chief Superintendent Titlayo Oluwasanmi, had earlier met with traditional rulers and stakeholders in the community, on the need to provide the division with any information that would help the police stem crimes in the area.
Following information from one of the residents that some suspected robbery gang/cultists hid their weapons inside an apartment in the community, Oluwasanmi led a team of policemen to the building located on Moshalashi Street. When a search was conducted round the building, the weapons comprising two brand new Berretta pistols and several rounds of ammunition, were discovered in an empty apartment in the building. The weapons were wrapped in a cream-coloured hijab and tucked inside a brown bag. Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Chike Oti, confirmed the discovery in a chat with Vanguard, yesterday.
