By Ola Fadoju
The So-Safe Corps has rescued Mr. Bamidele Mujeeb, a commercial motorcycle rider, who was attacked and robbed on Friday 9th September 2022.
The state commander of the corps, Dr Soji Ganzallo explained that on a fateful day in question, Mr. Ibrahim Oluwaseun, a 22-year-old resident of Olorogbo Compound, Asheko/Ibatefin Area of Ipokia Local Government, pretended to be a passenger and told the victim to take him from Aferiku Street, along Bebe Road, leading to the Republic of Benin.
The passenger later instructed the cyclist to go through another narrow route leading to the same destination. The suspect then brought out a gun, which was later discovered to be a toy gun, and commanded the cyclist to surrender his motorcycle or lose his life.
The So-Safe Patrol Team, Idiroko Division, led by CSC Abdulkareem Muhammad, came to the robbery scene and arrested the suspect.
In the course of the preliminary investigation, the suspect confessed to the crime.
Meanwhile, the victim, the suspect and the exhibit – a motorcycle and a toy gun-have been handed over to the Nigeria Police, Idiroko Divisional Headquarters for further investigations and likely prosecution.BEWARE All Rights Reserved.
