Police operatives have arrested a man with a locally made double barrel gun and three toy guns at the Tolu area of Ajegunle, Lagos. The police are investigating to know what the man who residents described as mentally unbalanced was doing with guns. The man simply identified as Monday was arrested in an abandoned school described by the police as hideout for armed robbers. While some residents believed that Monday is insane, others said he is an armourer to armed robbers.

A resident who identified himself simply as Adeolu told Crimewatch that the suspect is sane as he stayed close to a refuse dump near the school where he was collecting money from cart pushers who came to dump refuse. Adeolu said the suspect was only faking madness to avert prosecution. Another resident, Adegbenro claimed that he knew the man’s family. “His family lives at Tomoloju Street, Tolu, Ajegunle. His health issue started while he was in higher institution so, I know him very well, he is insane”.

However, the police said they were investigating to know how the suspect got the guns and what he was doing with them. A police source told Crimewatch that as part of the investigation process, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Tolu Police Station, Mr. Godwin Eze has promised to take the suspect to a Psychiatric hospital to ascertain his mental state. The police source continued that after ascertaining the mental state of the suspect, the force would know which way to go.

“We want to know whether he is an armed robber, armourer or he is insane”. When Crimewatch wanted to get the side of the suspect’s story, he was incoherent with his speech. “I belong to a cult group called White Angels Corps of Arrest Force. I am the Area Commander of Ilaje Federation in Ajegunle,” he said.
