This was announced in a statement on X on Saturday by SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the Force Public Relations Officer in Lagos State.

According to Hundeyin, the operatives on stop-and-search duty by the Agege Railway apprehended Kyari Idris (m), aged 20, and Abubakar Salisu (m), aged 18, in possession of a toy gun hidden under the seat of their motorcycle.

“Kyari Idris, aged 20, and Abubakar Salisu, aged 18, were found with a toy pistol under the seat of their motorcycles by police officers on stop-and-search duty at the Agege Railway Police Station,” Hundeyin stated.

He added that “the duo then resisted arrest, prompting the officers to call for backup.”
