Anti-Robbery police find pistol in 20-yr-old female student's bag




Two students of the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY), Abeokuta, Ogun State, have been arrested by the officers of the Ogun State Anti-Robbery Squad, after one of them was found with a locally made gun.
Oreoluwa Adedamola, a 20-year-old 200 level Ordinary National Diploma (OND) student of Mass Communication and Sikiru Kelani, a Marketing student and alleged member of the Buccaneer confraternity, were arrested on August 29 at about 11:45 pm.
Student  gathered from a Daily Post report that the duo were travelling to Lagos in a mini-truck when the Special Anti-Robbery Squad stopped them on the highway at Ifo and found the gun in Adedamola's bag.
In her statement published by, the student said the gun was Kelani's, not hers, adding that she was in Abeokuta to attend a funeral.
I went to a friend’s place after the event. I wanted to sleepover at her place but was told she travelled out of town to Ijebu Ode," she said.
"So, Kelani offered to accommodate me for the night.
"I was already sleeping when he woke me up some minutes after 9 pm and said we were travelling to Oshodi in Lagos.
"I was baffled because it was already late.
He lied to me that there was problem in the house, and we had to leave.
"He told me we should use the opportunity to attend a party being organized by his friend in Lagos."
Kelani confessed that he hid the gun in Adedamola's bag when he saw the police officers on the highway.
We were on our way to Oshodi, Lagos, to attend a friend’s party when we were arrested," he said.
Both students were paraded on Tuesday alongside other suspects by the Ogun State Commissioner of Police,Abdulmajid Ali.
Cultism has claimed the lives of several MAPOLY students in the last couple of months.
In July alone, four students reportedly lost their lives in a clash between the Eiye and Buccaneer cult groups.
