Oyeyemi said the suspect was arrested on Thursday following a distress call received by the Divisional Police Officer, Isara divisional Headquarters.

He explained that the suspected armed robber was arrested after the gang numbering about six invaded the school hostel to carry out the robbery operation.

The police spokesperson noted that five other members of the robbery gang escaped through the bush after attacking the police in a gun battle.

Oyeyemi added that the fleeing armed robbers escaped with varying degrees of injury.

“Upon the distress call, the DPO Isara division, CSP Shobiyi Oluwatoshin, quickly mobilised his men in conjunction with local vigilante men and moved to the scene. On sighting the policemen, the hoodlums opened fire on them and the policemen retaliated.

“At the end of the encounter, the robbers who have sustained varying degrees of gunshot injuries took to their heels and escaped to the bush.

“While the policemen were tracing them in the bush, Sodiq Yahaya was seen lying down with gunshot injury and he was promptly arrested.

“He has given useful information to the police concerning their past robbery operations in and around the Sagamu area. He confessed that his gang always target students hostel for their operation because students especially females are easy to rob.”
