The suspects

Operatives of the Ogun state police force have apprehended three suspected armed robbers for allegedly terrorising residents.

Abimbola Oyeyemi, the State Police Public Relations Officer, said Tuesday that the suspects were nabbed on Monday.

Oyeyemi identified the three suspects as Daniel Okereke, Henry Osagwe and Wisdom Atuba, saying their arrest followed a tip-off received by the policemen attached to Mowe division around 10 pm.

According to him, the policemen were informed that about seven men suspected to be armed robbers were sighted in a hideout at Ajeonibode area of Mowe, “where they were perfecting plans on when and how to attack their targeted victims.”

With the information, the DPO of Mowe police station, CSP Saminu Akintunde, was said to have quickly mobilized his men to the scene.

“On sighting the policemen, the hoodlums took to flight, but with the assistance of members of the community, three among them were apprehended while others escaped,” he said.

The police spokesman hinted that one locally-made short gun loaded with two live cartridges, two jack knives and criminal charms were recovered from the apprehended suspects.

He added that the case would be transferred to the State CIID, Eleweran, Abeokuta, on the order of the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, who also directed that the fleeing members of the gang be hunted for with a view to bringing them to justice as soon as possible.
