Police Command in Lagos State has declared an Ogboni leader, Tajudeen Olanrewaju Bakare wanted.
The development was contained in a statement on Thursday by Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin.
According to Hundeyin, Bakare was linked to the deadly clash in Surulere.
Recall that supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) clashed during the visit of PDP governorship candidate Abdulazeez Adeniran, otherwise called Jandor.
During the clash on Friday, there was open use of firearms and other weapons leaving at least two persons dead.
Hundeyin disclosed that the police acted on a video showing a man wielding a pump action rifle and threatening public peace.
The CSP Egbeyemi-led Rapid Response Squad (RRS), working on actionable intelligence, carried out a sting operation on Bakare’s residence in Surulere.
Officers found three pump action rifles, one Beretta pistol magazine, one expended 9mm ammunition, one expended and three live cartridges, and a picture frame.
“The suspect, Tajudeen Olanrewaju Bakare, narrowly escaped arrest and is hereby declared wanted.
“Any useful information leading to his arrest would be highly appreciated and treated with utmost confidentiality.”
