A 300 level student of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), identified as Kayode Alajo (24), has been arrested for alleged illegal possession of a firearm by men of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Ogun State.
The student was nabbed with a locally-made gun in Tekobo area of Idi-Aba, Abeokuta, Ogun State, by NSCDC operatives, who were on patrol of critical infrastructure around Sam Ewang/Idi-Aba axis in the state capital.
While confirming the arrest on Friday, the state Public Relations Officer of NSCDC, Kareem Olanrewaju, noted that the suspect was arrested after he and his gang allegedly burgled a Toyota Camry car with registration number Lagos FFF 593 AA at Tekobo area.
The PRO noted that several items were recovered from the suspect, which includes one international passport, charms and incriminating identity cards and documents. “The suspect, along with others now at large, have before now been suspected by residents to be the ones behind a series of crimes being committed in their community, hence their suspicion,” he added.
