The Ogun State-owned Community, Social Orientation and Safety Corps (So-Safe Corps) on Friday, 25th November 2022, arrested a man for hijacking a Bajaj motorcycle from a cyclist, who took him on his motorcycle to Agobaba, Yewa South Local Government Area of Ogun.

The corps commander, Ganzallo said that during the preliminary investigation, the suspect confessed that he stopped the cyclist from taking him as a passenger to Agobaba Area on a fateful day, but that his real motive was to snatch the motorcycle from him.

Ganzallo further said that the suspect allegedly directed the motorcyclist to take him towards a new site which happened to be his friend’s house.

On getting there, he picked a shovel kept by the side of the building and hit it on the cyclist’s head, with the intention to kill him and then make away with the motorcycle.
