He reported the recovery of seven firearms, two vehicles, 500kg of a substance suspected to be Indian hemp, Biafra currency notes, and other exhibits.

Ayoola Shola, the Public Relations Officer for the NSCDC in Kwara State, stated that on Monday, 1st July 2024, detectives from the Command’s tracking unit arrested Ibrahim Wasiu, a 31-year-old resident of Eyenkorin, Kwara State.

“The arrest followed a report by Mumini Kabir regarding several burglaries at his residence, where valuable items including a motorcycle, two Android phones, a home theater system, and other household goods were stolen.

“After thorough investigations, the suspect was apprehended, and all the stolen items were successfully recovered.

“Similarly, in a related development on the 30th of June, 2024, acting on a tip-off, the command’s tracking unit apprehended Soliu Jimoh, a 33-year-old male, for habitually theft of electrical cables and fittings from buildings under construction in Gaa Ajanaki area in Ilorin.
