Police Arrest Yoruba Nation Agitator After Over A Year On The Run

The Lagos State Police Command has confirmed the arrest of Olamilekan Odofin who was declared wanted after an attack in the state on January 9, 2023.

Recall that Odofin and other miscreants masquerading as Yoruba Nation Agitators attacked and disrupted social and commercial activities in the Ojota area of the state.

At least one person was confirmed dead, while two police officers were shot during the bloody attack by the miscreants.

While four suspects were arrested immediately by a team of police officers comprising Alausa Division and the Rapid Response Squad, RRS, Olamilekan Odofin escaped and remained elusive for a year.

However, the Lagos State Police Command’s Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, disclosed on Friday that the wanted suspect has been arrested.

In a post on his official X handle, the PPRO said the investigation into the incident is still ongoing.

He wrote: “After over a year on the run, 34-year-old Olamilekan Odofin has been arrested by officers of Ayobo Division.

“The suspect, on January 9, 2023, championed attacks on motorists and the police under the guise of Yoruba Nation agitation. Investigation is ongoing.”
