The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a land grabber, Ojo Adesola, with four locally made rifles and 38 rounds of live cartridges at Alagbado area of Lagos, NAN reports.
The Lagos State Police Command’s Spokesperson, DSP Bala Elkana, said in a statement that the suspect was arrested on June 21 at about 7.00 a.m. while acting on “credible intelligence” information.

“The suspect who hails from Ogun State belongs to a notorious gang of land grabbers and hired killers, terrorising Ogun and Lagos states. They act as war lords, waiting to be hired by anyone who can pay for their services to take over lands by force. They engaged in series of killings and maiming of land owners.
“According to the suspect, they were hired by someone to dislodge land owners at Epe and that he was on his way to pick the other members of the gang for the operation before he was arrested,” the police spokesman said.
He said that the police were on the trail of five other members of his gang who are at large.
