Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Tuesday arrested 33-year-old Soladoye Hammed Olayinka and Adeleye Ibrahim Adesola who is 24 years of age over possession of a Marochi Double Barrel Gun.
Olayinka claimed to be a graduate of Animal Production and Health, while Adesola said he is an undergraduate of Industrial Relations and Personnel Management in the Osun State University.
Their arrest was in line with the Presidential executive order on withdrawal of licensed firearms and shotguns from private individuals, which took effect from June 1, 2019.
EFCC’s preliminary investigation has revealed that the license allegedly obtained for the gun was inconsistent.
EFCC says the suspects will be transferred to the Nigerian Police Force for further investigation.
