The Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos Police Command has intercepted five persons with guns and bullets.
The RRS made the arrest and photos public in a statement on its Facebook page.
The suspects were caught with a pump-action rifle, a locally made revolver and 21 live cartridges.
They are Ayomide Adeolu (24), Quam Olanrewaju (19), Oladele Giwa (16) Basit Adams (17) and Ayinde Abibat (20).
