Police arrest suspects

By Ola Fadoju

Operatives of the Ogun State Police Command have arrested five men for robbing a company at the Sango Ota area in the Ado-Odo Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State.

Some criminal gang members were arrested on the 19th of September, 2022.

The suspects, Umar Haruna, Abbah Yahaya, Muritala Umar, Wale Fadeyi and Segun Olofinmade, were arrested following a distress call received by policemen at Sango Divisional Headquarters at about 12:30 am, that a group of armed robbers numbering about 10, and armed with cutlasses had forcibly gained entrance into Balita Company and carted away motor engines which the company is selling.

On receiving the distress call, the DPO Sango Division, SP Saleh Dahiru, mobilised his men and moved into the area.

On sighting the policemen, the hoodlums who came with a Mitsubishi Canter bus with registration number LSR 414 YF, took to their heels, but they were chased. Five of them were arrested, while others escaped.

Preliminary investigation revealed that the robbery incident was masterminded by the former Chief Security Officer of the company who was relieved of his duty about three months ago. The said former Chief Security Officer is presently on the run. Recovered from the five suspects is a Mitsubishi Canter bus loaded with ten motor engines and cutlasses.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, has directed that the case be transferred to State Criminal Investigation Department for discreet investigation. He equally ordered a massive manhunt for the fleeing former Chief Security Officer with the view to bringing him to justice.
