The Lagos State Police Command has declared one Tajudeen Olanrewaju Bakre wanted while also vowing to deal with anyone engaging in breach of public peace within the state.
Making this public on Thursday, the state Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Benjamin Hundeyin announced this in a statement on his verified twitter handle.
According to Hundeyin, the suspect Tajudeen was declared wanted following the emergence of a video earlier this week showing a man wielding a pump action rifle and threatening public peace on social media. He said:
Following the emergence of a video earlier this week showing a man wielding a pump action rifle and threatening public peace, the CSP Egbeyemi-led Rapid Response Squad (RRS), working on actionable intelligence, carried out a sting operation on the residence of the man in the Surulere area of the state.
Benjamin further said that;
The Police found in the suspect’s residence, three pump action rifles, one Beretta pistol magazine, one expended and three live cartridges and a picture frame of the suspect.
The suspect, Tajudeen Olanrewaju Bakare, narrowly escaped arrest and is hereby declared wanted. Any useful information leading to his arrest would be highly appreciated and treated with utmost confidentiality.
While appreciating Lagosians for their vigilance and prompt information to security agencies, the Lagos State Police Command once again warns all trouble makers to steer clear of the state as anyone found wanting would be dealt with in accordance with the law.
