The Police Public Relations Officer, Lagos State Command, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, has narrated how men of the Command rejected a N500,000 bribe allegedly offered by suspected cultists. This was contained in a statement on Thursday titled, ‘Armed Robbery Suspect, Cultist Nabbed; Arms, Ammunition Recovered’.

The PPRO said an anti-crime patrol team of the Area ‘J’ Command, Elemoro arrested an armed robbery suspect and a suspected cultist with a locally-made double barrel gun and three cartridges.

“The armed robbery suspect, Alabi Timothy ‘m’ aged 23, resident of 9, Baale street, Majek, Ajah, was arrested at about 0030hrs of 4/9/2021 at General Paint, Garden area, Lekki during a routine stop and search by the police. “A locally-made double barrel gun and two live cartridges including an expended cartridge concealed in a bag were recovered from the suspect.

“Similarly, a self-confessed cultist, Badmus Toheed (male), 22, who belongs to the Aye Confraternity was arrested with a live cartridge in the General Paint ghetto area, Ajah at about 0045hrs of 4th September, 2021. The suspect confessed that he was initiated into the Aye Confraternity sometime in June, 2021.”



Continuing, Ajisebutu said, “Two suspects have been arrested for offering bribe to the police to secure the release of the two suspects and pervert the course of justice. “While Adariku Sunday ‘m’, 34, resident of 66, Henry Smith Close, Abidjan GRA, Ajah offered the sum of N400,000 bribe in cash to secure the release of the robbery suspect, Folorunso Akeem, (m), 43, offered the sum of N100, 000 cash to secure the release of the suspected cultist. “Determined to ensure justice through thorough investigation, the uncompromising police officers in charge of the case rejected the bribe.

“While commending the professionalism and uncompromising act of the police officers, the Commissioner of Police (Hakeem Odumosu) admonishes other police officers to emulate the incorruptible ones.” Ajisebutu said Odumosu directed that the case should be transferred to the Command’s Tactical Team for further investigation and prosecution.
