Police in Oyo State has declared Mukaila Lamidi, alias Auxiliary, the sacked chairman of the state Park Management System (PMS), wanted.
The authorities announced this in a media briefing on Friday.
The move follows another raid of his hotel where more dangerous weapons were recovered on Thursday.
Policemen had stormed Auxiliary’s Ibadan residence recovering weapons and ammunition.
During the operation, the suspect reportedly escaped, while some of his lieutenants were arrested.
There was palpable tension in some parts of the state after the raid, especially in major car parks and garages in Ibadan, the state capital, amid reports of an unconfirmed number of casualties during the face-off between the police and PMS members.
