The Lagos State Police Command has confirmed the arrest of a suspected terrorist, Sanni Gafar, in the Ijora Badia area of the state.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, in a post on Twitter on Monday, said Gafar, who was alleged to have dressed as a woman, was arrested after an angry mob attacked him on the suspicion that he was a terrorist.

He said policemen rescued him from being lynched, adding that the command had commenced investigation into the case.

Hundeyin wrote, “Around 11am, a mob descended on an alleged terrorist at Ijora Badia. The police arrived on time to save him from lynching. Preliminary investigation shows that the male suspect, who many alleged disguised as a woman, is Sanni Gafar, 29.

“He was found with a bag containing three hammers, six screwdrivers, one pair of pliers, one chisel, five spanners, three rolls of black cellophane, cable wires, 20mm bending spring, a pair of black trousers, and a plastic box of clips.

“Investigation is ongoing to ascertain his claim that he is an electrician. The Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, while commending residents of Lagos for their vigilance, once again warns against any form of jungle justice. All suspicious persons or movements are to be reported to security agencies.”
