A police officer, identified as Haruna Yusuf, has been arrested for allegedly stealing and selling a pistol belonging to the former Station Officer in charge of Omu Aran Divisional Police Station, Ehigimetor Ileso, to suspected cult members in Kwara State.
The police operative, 38, works as a traffic officer.
Equally important, the incident resulted in the dismissal and subsequent death of the former Station Officer who owned the pistol.
Yusuf was arrested by operatives of the Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT) in Osogbo, the Osun State capital. His arrest came in the wake of a report that some suspected cult members were coming from Kwara State to unleash mayhem in Osun State. Also arrested was Tajudeen Olalekan Hammed, Chukwudi Eze, Alebo Elijah, Alebo Israel, Abimbola Olaonipekun and Olarinde Abiodun.
Speaking with newsmen while being paraded, Yusuf, however denied stealing the pistol.
‘‘I have been serving in Kwara State since I was enlisted. I was first posted to Omu Aran Division and later transferred to other Divisions in Kwara, but I am now back in Omu Aran.
I didn’t steal it (the gun). But I don’t know what came over me. I saw the pistol at the mosque. I can only say that I am sorry. Out of the two arms that I sold to him, one belonged to the Omu Aran Divisional Police Station, while the other one was locally-made.
‘‘The one that belonged to the Division, I saw it outside the mosque behind the police station.
“I didn’t know that it belonged to the SO. It was about three years ago. I got a locally made pistol in Benue State. The person who sold it to me is dead now. We went for burial and he was talking about selling it and somebody directed him to me. I bargained with him and bought it from him.
“When I picked the gun, it didn’t occur to me to take it to the station; despite the fact that I knew that it was not valuable to me. I didn’t know that I was going to be using it because I don’t know what actually came over me. I mistakenly sold the gun.
‘‘Also, I have never been involved in any selling or stealing of gun before. The SO is late now. Later, I heard that the Division was looking for the gun. I was afraid to recover it and hand it over to the armourer.
“I sold the guns to a Disk Jockey ( DJ) in my area. He has a shop around Traffic Junction in Omu Aran, where I served. I didn’t know that he was a cult member. I sold the locally made pistol to him at N25, 000 and the English pistol at N47,000.”
Probed on his reaction when the deceased SO was being tried for the missing pistol, Yusuf denied being aware that the SO was arrested.
“I feel very sorry. When the trial process was going on, I was not at the Division,” he stated.
Osun State Commissioner of Police, Wale Olokode, who confirmed the arrest of the police sergeant and the cult members to newsmen, listed, one police beretta pistol, one locally-made revolver pistol, two locally fabricated pistol, one local cut-to-size short gun, 11 live cartridges, five knives, three battle axes and one cutlass as some exhibits recovered from the gang.

Osun NSCDC arrests 24-year-old suspected online scammer
Bright Joseph, a 24-year-old suspected online scammer has been arrested by operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Osun State Command.
Disclosing this via a statement made available to DAILY POST on Thursday in Osogbo, the spokesperson, Adigun Daniel, revealed that the suspect was arrested at his residence, Zone 6, Apete Area, Owode-Ede, on Wednesday, January 26, 2022.
Adigun, who disclosed that Johnson, a National Diploma (ND) certificate holder from Auchi Polytechnic, Edo State, stated that the suspect had fraudulently advertised on his Instagram handle the sales of eggs in a non-existent farm called Choice Farm he was operating which is located in Ogbogbo, Ijebu Ode, Ogun State.
The Osun NSCDC spokesperson explained that he had successfully scammed a 37-year-old Halima Ashifa, a resident of Sango Ota, Ogun State, before luck ran out for him.
According to Adigun, “Halima Ashifa signified interest in the supply of eggs and established contact with the suspect.
“She eventually made a cash transfer of a total sum of fifty-five thousand Naira (N55,000) in two instalments of seven thousand and five hundred naira (N7500) and forty-seven thousand and five hundred naira (N47,500) only for the eggs on January 21 and 25, 2022, respectively.
“The money was deposited in a GTBank account, which the suspect claimed was the account belonging to his company secretary. Whereas, the account number actually belongs to a Point Of Sales (POS) operator at Owode-Ede.”
While disclosing that the crime committed by the suspect was tantamount to obtaining money under false pretence, Adigun stated that he had violated Section 1(1) A(C) of the Advanced Fee Fraud and Other Related Offences Act, 2006.
He explained that he contravened the act because he fraudulently obtained money from his victim knowing that he had no eggs for sale and he did not own any poultry farm.
The command spokesperson, however, stated that the suspect would be charged to court in due course because he has volunteered confessional statements to confirm his culpability.
