Following renewed clashes between street urchins battling for supremacy at the Mushin area of Lagos State, three persons believed to be masterminds of the bloody clashes, were weekend, arrested by the police at separate locations within the area.
Vanguard gathered that the suspects, identified as Wasiu Akinwande, alias Oloriesho, Afeez Kehinde and Mubolr Jones were apprehended at Daleko, Isolo and Olosha areas of Mushin, by policemen from the Area D and Olosha Division respectively.
Vanguard had, last week, reported of a renewed onslaught by street urchins battling for control of motor parks in the Mushin area.
Similarly, four suspects, who were caught with an AK47 rifle alleged to have been snatched from a policeman, by policemen attached to the D9 section of the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, were said to have confessed that their rifles were handed to them by the suspects and others, who are currently at large.
Police sources disclosed that several AK47 and pump action ammunition were recovered from the Ilesami when searched.
The source further disclosed that Ilesanmi and Jones were apprehended at Daleko and when they searched his (Ilesanmi) father’s house at Mushin, some cartridges were found.
Also, when his house at Ikotun was searched, the operatives found several AK47 rifle and ammunition.
Vanguard gathered during the weekend that Mushin has been in relative peace since the arrest of the suspects. The residents had commended the police for being proactive in bringing the suspects to book.
They told Vanguard that their area has been relatively calm since the police has commenced clamping down on leaders of the gang behind all hostilities within Mushin and it environ.
Meanwhile, when Vanguard contacted the State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, on this report he told Vanguard that it was impossible for an Area Commander or a Divisional Police Officer, to grant bail to a suspect with such an allegation.
He assured that the matter will be investigated and the police will make public the true position of the matter.
