The police command in Lagos says its operatives have arrested Azeez Babatunde, a minibus driver, over alleged unlawful possession of pistols, in the Maroko area of the state.

Benjamin Hundeyin, the command’s spokesperson, disclosed the arrest on Thursday.

Hundeyin said the officers, who were on patrol, arrested the suspect as his accomplices fled.

He added that two locally-made pistols, two unexpended cartridges and a knife were recovered during search of the vehicle.


“At about 5:00 a.m., anti-crime patrol officers from Maroko Division noticed a minibus do a quick U-turn upon sighting them on Hakeem Dickson Street,” Hundeyin wrote on X.

“The officers went in pursuit, but six persons jumped out of the vehicle, running in different directions.

“The officers caught up with the vehicle and arrested the only person left in the vehicle, the driver, Babatunde.”


Hundeyin added that investigation into the case was ongoing.
