nigeria police badge logoThe Lagos state Police Command yesterday said it had arrested a suspected mad man, who is being held for allegedly being in possession of arms and ammunition.

The spokesperson of the Command, DSP Ngozi Braide, disclosed this during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), in Lagos.

She said that the suspect was arrested on Saturday, at the Gowon Estate, Ipaja, Lagos.

Braide told NAN that the suspect was allegedly seen at 5th Avenue, Customs Junction, Gowon Estate, Ipaja, while trying to empty some items into a dust bin.

“The people were curious about what he was dumping. Upon closer examination, it was discovered that the mad man emptied one locally-made double-barrel pistol and four live cartridges into the dust bin.

“The youths in the community claimed they have been seeing him around the area as a mad man.

“He was immediately handed over to the police at Gowon Estate but under interrogation, he was not coherent in his speech.

“He was later transferred to the State CID, Panti St., Yaba, for further investigation,’’ Braide said.

The spokesperson commended residents of the Gowon Estate, Ipaja for their vigilance and security consciousness, and urged them to continue to assist the police with useful information on suspicious movements. (NAN)
