The So-Safe Corps of the Ogun State Government has detained a man named Matthew for being in possession of a firearm and hazardous weapons.
Matthew used to work on a farm in Ibadan, Oyo State, but claims that his pay wasn’t enough to suit his demands, so he moved to Ogun State.
Matthew was spotted outside the FRSC headquarters in Alapako, along the Lagos-Ibadan Express Way, according to a So-Safe Corps spokeswoman, and he was suspected of criminal intent.
He was apprehended right away, and the operation team discovered a locally produced gun, a large stick, an ATM card, three phones, a cutlass, and a saw blade.
“Having carried out the preliminary investigation on him, the suspect and the exhibit found with him were handed over to the police at Alapako for further investigation and likely prosecution.” the official said.
