The Ogun State Police Command has arrested three suspected armed robbers in Ijebu Ode, while allegedly trying to dispossess one Bello Ibrahim of his motorcycle with number plate, GBE 159 VZ.
The suspects were identified as Suleiman Waheed, Mathew Johnson and Isiaka Momoh.
They were said to have been arrested on Tuesday along the Ijebu Ode -Ibadan Road.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the suspects were arrested by policemen attached to the Awa Ijebu Police Division, who were on a routine patrol of the area.
He said, “They got the information and quickly raced to the scene and were able to arrest the three suspects.”
He said the suspects had made confessional statements and the motorcycle had been recovered.
He said investigations by the police revealed that the culprits have been terrorising the area for some time.
The PPRO stated that the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, had ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation.
“The CP further warned that crime would have no place in the state.” Oyeyemi said.
