“The suspects were arrested following a distress call received by the DPO Agbara division that armed robbers have invaded idanyin community and have been raiding house to house dispossessing their victims of their belongings and inflicting various degrees of injury on them.
“Upon the distress call, the DPO Agbara division SP Saleh Dahiru quickly led his anti robbery team to the scene and met the robbers attacking the residences of one Barrister Kamieyefa Omosivwe and that of Oluyemi Olajide.
“On sighting the police, the robbers launch an attack on them, but they were over powered and three members of the gang were eventually arrested while one of them escaped.

“Meanwhile, the commissioner of police CP Kenneth Ebrimson has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to special anti robbery squads SARS for discreet investigation.”
