During the clash, there was an open use of firearms and other weapons, which according to reports, left two persons dead.

According to Hundeyin, the command acted on the emergence of a video showing a man wielding a pump action rifle and threatening public peace.

He said the CSP Egbeyemi-led Rapid Response Squad (RRS), working on actionable intelligence, carried out a sting operation on the residence of Tajudeen Olanrewaju Bakare in the Surulere area of the state.

“Found in the suspect’s residence were three pump action rifles, one Beretta pistol magazine, one expended 9mm ammunition, one expended and three live cartridges, and a picture frame of the suspect,” the statement reads.
