Abeokuta - The Ogun Police Command has arrested 11 suspected criminals notorious for disturbing the peace of residents of Idi-Agbon village in Ado- Odo/ Otta Local Government Area.
The command's spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi, who stated this in a statement on Tuesday in Abeokuta, said two AK 47 rifle, three pump action guns, and 48 live cartridges were recovered from them.
Adejobi said that the men were arrested in Otta on Saturday at about 6 p.m. as they were unleashing terror on residents.
