According to a report by the New Telegraph, serious alarm was visibly written on the faces of policemen from the Lagos State Police Command, who recovered sack of guns and ammunition in a secondary school in Mushin.
This discovery was made barely days after the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Imohimi Edgal, raised the alarm over the increasing number of youths’ involvement in cultism.
According to the commissioner, the sack was found in Eko Boys High School. Edgal disclosed that the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in charge of Alakara Police Station stormed the school after receiving tip-off through community partnership.
The commissioner said that immediately after the DPO received the information, he swung into action.
He first selected a team of crack detectives and went to the school, where the weapons were recovered.
He said: “To the surprise of the DPO and his team, when the sack was opened one Magnum double- barrelled pump rifle, double-barrelled pump action gun, one Barretta pistol, 9mm live ammunition and 10 live cartridges.”
