Three men were arrested by the Ogun State Police Command on Friday with 68 live cartridges and a bag of marijuana during a routine stop and search at the entrance of the command.
PUNCH Metro learnt that the three men, whose identities have yet to be confirmed, claimed that they did not know how the incriminating items got into their vehicle.
The incident was said to have caused a stir at the command with many people gathering around the gate to watch the drama.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Muyiwa Adejobi, said investigations were ongoing, adding that the explanation offered by the suspects was not satisfactory.
He said, “They (suspects), came to the command on Friday and during the routine search of their vehicle, we found 68 live cartridges and marijuana in a container.
“During interrogation, they claimed that they came to deliver a petition to the police. They said they were not the owners of the vehicle and efforts are being made to find the real owner of the vehicle and possibly the guns. The suspects are still in custody.”
