Police arrest 4 robbery suspects in Ogun

The Police Command in Ogun on Monday said it arrested four members of a robbery syndicate terrorising Sango-Ota and its environs.

The Ogun State Police Spokesman, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said this in a statement in Ota, Ogun.

Oyeyemi said the suspects were: Sherrif Kamoru, 28; Rabiu Seyidu, 37; Opeyemi Adebayo, 26, and Ajibola Fakolade, 21.

He explained that the suspects were arrested on March 20, following a report lodged at Sango-Ota Divisional Headquarters by one Adeleye Sunday, who reported that he was attacked by some armed hoodlums at about 5.30 a.m. at Joju area of Sango-Ota.

The PPRO stated further that the hoodlums allegedly dispossessed Sunday of two phones after attacking him with machete, injuring him on the neck.

He added that having taken away his phones, the hoodlums siphoned the sum of N600,000 from his account through the bank’s app on the phone.

“Upon the report, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) Sango-Ota Division, CSP Saleh Dahiru, detailed his detectives to technically trace the suspects and bring them to justice.
