The Ogun State Police Command says it has recovered 20 bags of Indian hemp and other dangerous weapons during a raid on the hideouts of some hoodlums on Saturday.
The spokesperson for the state police command, Muyiwa Adejobi, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, said in a statement on Sunday, “The Ogun Special Anti-Robbery Squad team, led by the Officer in Charge, SP Ahmed Tijani, on Saturday, after a tip-off from the command’s intelligence unit, raided the criminals at one of their dens in Makun area of Sagamu.
“The hoodlums, who fled the scene on sighting the police, were into many social vices. Search conducted on the house led to recovery of 20 bags of weed suspected to be Indian hemp and some weapons suspected to have been used for various robbery operations by the hoodlums.
“The Commissioner of Police, Ikemefuna Okoye, has vowed to fish out these hoodlums to maintain low crime rate in the state.
The CP has also ordered that the exhibits be transferred to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency for investigation.”
Adejobi said the command had embarked on constant raids of criminal hideouts and would continue to do so until crime was kept at bay.
