Operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS), Lagos State Police Command, at the weekend, recovered an AK – 47 and a pump action gun loaded with eight rounds of live ammunition in Ajah area of the state. All the items, including a hood and a plier were inside a black sack.

The items were recovered by a team of officers on special assignment in the area based on intelligence about the suspicious substances before detouring to check it out.

A statement by the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Adekunle Ajisebutu, said the items were suspected to be abandoned by armed robbers.

He added that the Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, commended the RRS Commander and his men for the recovery and the strategic informant, who provided the information leading to the recovery.

The CP has, however, directed that a discreet investigation should be carried out by the Command’s Special Squad with a view to arrest the suspected robbers, who could have used the weapons to cause serious harm to innocent people in the state.
