Ogun State Police Command has recovered 1,179 arms and 2,266 ammunitions during its mop up of unlawful weapons in the hands of criminal elements across the state.

The Command, however, added that one person had willingly surrendered his Pump Action riffle to it in Ogun State in compliance with the directive of the Inspector – General of Police on return of illegal arms possession by private individuals.

The Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, made this known at the Command’s Headquarters, Eleweran – Abeokuta, on Thursday, while displaying the arms and ammunitions before journalists.

Iliyasu listed 24 AK 47 assault riffles, 66 Pump Action guns, 1,088 single and double barrel guns, 1,025 rounds of 7.25mm ammunitions and 1,241 cartridges as the number of illegal arms and ammunitions recovered from criminals in the last couple of most months.

Asked why just a single individual in the state yielded to the Police Inspector – General’s directive to return illegal arms to the Command at the expiration of the 21 days ultimatum, the Commissioner of Police said others are “apprehensive,” explaining probably that informed why they are dilly – dallying to returns theirs.

He also paraded 27 crime suspects, including seven robbery suspects, cultists, kidnappers, fraudsters and car snatching syndicates who were arrested at different times and locations for various crimes committed in the state.

    Why did this man surrender his weapons?
    How many have they recovered from herdsmen? How many herdsmen in military uniforms have been arrested.? Yet someone is surrendering arms when people should be arming themselves against all these unforseen evils called herdsmen. I agine if one person could surrender so much arms as the police claimed, how many will be in the possession of the terrorists in the north? All these surrendered arms, where will they be going from here?
    These are the multiple unanswered questions that need to be addressed.
