The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed this to journalists in Abeokuta on Monday.

“The arrested Tosin Ogundeko subsequently led detectives to their hideout in Epe, Lagos State, where the remaining three were apprehended, while one of them simply identified as Tosin a.k.a socket escaped.

“On interrogation, the suspects confessed to being responsible for various motorcycle snatching operations in Ijebu-Ode and its environs.
