One of the officers of the Zonal Intervention Squad, ZIS, Zone 2 Lagos, who was present during the encounter with the criminals said the battle had been a tough one and the criminals proved to be very deadly but they succeeded in capturing some at Ogijo, while a few others escaped.
“These criminals are suspected militants. They came to Lagos through the water and from there they terrorize citizens. We got intel and went after them. They engaged is in a fight,” the policeman said.“One of them, this one called Almighty King of the Jungle, he is their oga. During the fight, he was boasting. He said ‘If them no kill Osaze, them go kill Onome’. It’s a proverb. The other top members of their group escaped – Agboola, General, and Vice -, those are their names. During the fight, they were saying that before we will arrest them the village will suffer. This one called Almighty made the statement. They were so sure of themselves that they will succeed but their charm failed them,” he said.
