“Found in the suspect’s residence were three pump action rifles, one Beretta pistol magazine, one expended 9mm ammunition, one expended and three live cartridges, and a picture frame of the suspect. The suspect, Tajudeen Olanrewaju Bakare, narrowly escaped arrest and is, hereby, declared wanted. Any useful information leading to his arrest would be highly appreciated and treated with utmost confidentiality.
