As a result of the missing pistol which occurred in January 2019, Ehigimetor was subjected to police orderly room trial and was later dismissed from service due to his inability to account for the ammunition which was an English Berretta Pistol.
Inspector Ehigimetor eventually died as a result of his dismissal from the force based on the missing pistol.
Haruna and other suspects have been arrested by the DCP Tunji Disu-led IRT and are currently helping with the ongoing investigation.
According to police sources, IRT had swung into action upon credible intelligence that a notorious criminal who operates in Kwara and Osun States, one Lekan Tajudeen was in possession of firearms being used by some criminal elements to torment residents of the affected states.
Tajudeen, aka Rector, resident of Ilorin in Kwara State is said to be the leader of Aye Confraternity secret cult group in one of the tertiary institutions in Kwara State.
Having gotten wind of the fact that the police operatives were on his trail, Tajudeen ran to Ede in Osun State to hibernate.
The police, not relenting on their oars, extended investigation to Ede town, and the suspect was subsequently apprehended with one English Berretta Pistol with two rounds of live ammunition.
Upon interrogation, the suspect claimed to have bought the pistol from one Eze Chukwudi ‘m’ through one Olarinre Abiodun aka Yeukeu at the rate of N180,000 which he has been using for his criminal acts.
His confession eventually led to the arrest of Eze Chukwudi who also confessed that he bought another locally made pistol with five live ammunition at the rate of N60,000 and also the armorer of the Aye Confraternity secret cult group in Omu-Aran, Kwara State. He also said he kept the arms with one Elijah Alebo ‘m’ and Israel Alebo of Igandu Street, Omu-Aran in Kwara State.
