Mr Fayemi said, “Michael Abiodun was arrested around a bank close to Igigbo axis along Irons in Ado-Ekiti. He specialises in robbing passersby and customers of banks under false pretence and other illegal means.”
The NSCDC boss further said the command also arrested one Yusuf Abubakar and one Johnson Lawal for disturbing public peace and instigating violence during the last APC local government congresses in the state.
Fayemi said items recovered from them included Indian hemp and weapons.
He noted that the command would charge the suspects to court as soon as the investigation was concluded.
