Vanguard gathered that the recovered guns are three European-made pump action rifles numbers L926547, R268751 and P987707; one locally-made double-barrelled rifle and one locally-made single-barrelled rifle.

The guns were recovered during targeted raids of uncompleted, unoccupied houses and plots of land at the estate.

Also, a Berretta and two locally-made pistols were recovered at Elemoro, during a similar search by Police detectives in the area, leading to the arrest of 11 armed robbery suspects.

Confirming the recovery of guns and arrest of suspects, the spokesman of Lagos State Police Command, CSP Chike Oti, said the Commissioner of Police, Imohinmi Edgal, has directed the ballistic arm of the SCIID Panti, Yaba, to commence an investigation into the case.
