Police arrest 5 suspects for robbery at Ogun company

Police in Ogun State have  arrested five suspects for allegedly robbing a company at Sango ota, in Ado odo Ota Local Government Area of Ogun state. 

The suspects, Umar Haruna, Abbah Yahaya,  Muritala Umar, Wale Fadeyi and Segun Olofinmade were arrested, following a distress call received by policemen at Sango divisional headquarters.

The Police Spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi said  police were informed that a group of armed robbers numbering about ten, and armed with cutlasses had forcefully gained entrance into Balita Company and packing away motor engines which the company is selling. 

He said after receiving the distress call, the DPO Sango division, SP Saleh Dahiru, mobilized his men and moved into the area. 

“On sighting the policemen, the hoodlums who came with a Mitsubishi Canter bus with registration number LSR 414 YF took to their heels but they were chased and five amongst them were apprehended while others escaped,” he said. 

According to him, preliminary investigation revealed that the robbery incident was masterminded by the former Chief Security officer of the company who was relieved of his duty about three months ago. 

He explained that the said former Chief security officer “is presently on the run.”

Oyeyemi said a Mitsubishi Canter bus loaded with ten motor engines and cutlasses were recovered from the suspects. 

He quoted  the Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, to have directed that the case be transferred to State Criminal Investigation Departments for discreet investigation. 

Oyeyemi added that the CP equally ordered a massive manhunt for the fleeing former Chief Security Officer with the view to bring him to justice.
