Omotayo Olaiya, a Nigerian man, has been arrested for allegedly threatening to use a gun to kill a woman, Mayo Olatunji, while she was worshipping in a mosque in the Ebute-Meta area of Lagos State, The PUNCH reports.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, said in a statement on Wednesday that after receiving a complaint from Olatunji, policemen tracked down Olaiya, adding that a pistol was recovered from him.
He said, “Police operatives attached to the Denton Division of the Lagos State Police Command, on May 3, 2021, around 11am, received a complaint from Mrs Shakirat Mayo Olatunji that one Omotayo Olaiya threatened to kill her with a gun inside the Ansarudeen Mosque, located at No. 72-74 Bola Street, Ebute-Meta, Lagos.
“On the strength of the complaint, a surveillance team was detailed to track down the suspect and he was eventually arrested. A brownie pistol and one Motorola walkie-talkie were recovered from him.
“Upon interrogation, the suspect confessed that he bought the pistol from one Taiwo residing in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State in November 2020, at the rate of N80,000.
“The state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has ordered that the case be transferred to the command’s Special Squad, Ikeja, for proper investigation and arrest of other suspects in connection with the case of unlawful possession of firearm and threat to the life of the complainant.”
