He was, however, sighted in Ikorodu on Sunday while the DPO Sagamu Road Division and his men were on surveillance patrol around Ikorodu.
Agodo, who has been fingered in many murder cases, including the alleged killing of a policeman, in Ikorodu, was caught in possession of two locally-made revolver pistols, each loaded with seven and 14 rounds of cartridges; one axe, some cutlasses and assorted charms.

The police detectives rushed to the scene after a distress call from the shop.
The suspected armed robbers had shot one of the guards at the shop, Tairu Baba, 20, before the police arrived at the scene.
One locally-made pistol and four cartridges were recovered from the suspect.
