According to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Imohimi Edgal, the DPO, CSP Ifeanyi Owo, on the 11th of October, 2018, received a call from an unknown number and the caller threatened him because he arrested their leader named Kayode Ojo. He also rained curses on the officer saying that the DPO will know no peace again; that he will kill the DPO and burn down the police station to ashes.
The CP further said, “On receipt of this threat, he quickly contacted me as the Commissioner of Police and I directed the officer in charge of Anti-kidnapping Squad to ensure that the culprit was arrested”.
