Suspected robbers who ran from Osun State to Ogun have been arrested by the Police.
The four suspects had burgled a phone accessory shop in Ile-Ife Osun State and ran to hibernate in Ogun state but luck ran out on them as they were picked.
Ogun State Police Public Officer (PPRO) DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi in a statement, said : “The suspects: Nura Bashir, 20, Awalu Aliyu ,38, Shuaibu Abdul Rasheed, 25, and Abdullah Usman,23, were arrested following a report by Gbenga Siyanbola, at Mowe police station, Ogun State.
Oyeyemi said that, while the complainant was coming from Osun state going to Lagos, his vehicle developed a mechanical fault somewhere in Mowe.
In the process of trying to rectify the fault, the four arrested men suddenly appeared from nowhere and robbed him of his Samsung phone.
“Upon the report, the DPO Mowe division, CSP Marvis Jayeola, detailed his detectives to go after the hoodlums. The detectives after weeks of painstaking investigation were able to trace one of the suspects to Ikire in Osun state where he was apprehended. His arrest led the police to arrest his other three accomplices. Surprisingly, in the course of investigation, some other phones and accessories which had earlier been stolen from the complainant’s factory were also recovered from the suspects.
“Preliminary investigation revealed that, the suspects had earlier burgled the shop of the same complainant at Ile Ife in Osun state and that the case was reported at A Division Moore, Ile-Ife. Unfortunately for the hoodlums, their recent victim in Ogun state happened to be their earlier victim.”
“Meanwhile, the Commissioner of police Edward Awolowo Ajogun has ordered that the suspects be transferred to Osun state command for diligent prosecution”.
