Herdsman with Ak-47 arrested in Ogun

Ogun State Police Command agents detained a herdsman who merely identified himself as Mohammed with one AK-47 weapon.

According to a statement from the state police command's spokesman, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, the arms-wielding herdsman was apprehended after the DPO, Imeko Divisional headquarters, received information that two young Fulani boys were spotted with an Ak 47 rifle at CAC Oha forest, Iwoye Ketu in Imeko Afon local government area of the state.

“Upon receiving the information, the DPO assembled his men as well as other stakeholders like as hunters, Vigilante guys, and the So Safe Corps and attacked the aforementioned forest,” Oyeyemi added.

He stated further that after hours of combing the forest, one Mohammed was seen hiding in the bush with one AK 47 riffle and was promptly arrested.

The police said the young Fulani boy is strongly suspected to be a member of kidnap syndicates who has been terrorizing the area for quite some time now.

Meanwhile, State Commissioner of Police, Edward Awolowo Ajogun, has ordered that the suspect be immediately transferred to the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for a thorough investigation.

He also ordered that the entire forest be thoroughly searched in order to arrest the rest of his group.
