A statement signed by the Lagos State Police Command Spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, averred that the Anti-Crime patrol team attached to Ajah Divisional Police Headquarters, while on routine patrol, apprehended a silver Honda City vehicle with number plate GGE 288 GV.

The three occupants of the car are identified as Emeka George, 30 years; Ahmed Balogun, 23 years, and Bolaji Elewuro, 29 years.
