The men of the Ogun State Police Command have arrested a robbery suspect, at Ilese-Ijebu on October 1, during an operation.

The State Police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement issued in Ota said that the suspect was arrested following a distress call received by the police at about 12.30 midnight.

The call indicated that armed robbers were terrorising residents of Silva Estate, Odomalasa area of Ilese Ijebu.

It read in part, “Upon the distress call, the Divisional Police Officer, Ilese Ijebu, CSP Amuda Bolaji, mobilised a patrol team to the scene.”


He added that on sighting the police, the hoodlums took to their heels, but one of them was arrested with the assistance of members of the community while others are still at large.

He stated also that one locally-made gun with one live cartridge was recovered from the arrested suspect.

Oyeyemi said that the Acting Commissioner of Police in Ogun, Abiodun Alamutu, had ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to state Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for investigation.
