“They were subjected to a search during which one {01} locally made pistol, two live cartridges, one {01} dagger, and some native charms were recovered from them, Edafe said.

The two suspects are in custody and investigation is ongoing.

Meanwhile, CP Wale Abass while commending the officers, also advised members of the public to be wary of motorcycle riders conveying two or three male occupants as some of them operate in the guise of being okada riders and rob innocent persons of their belongings.

He noted that they could be dangerous, saying that the command will do all it can to nip it in the bud before they can carry out their nefarious activities.

CP Abass advised residents to be wary of some motorcycle riders, especially those carrying more than two male passengers.
