Just before raid, suspect in net

After all was set to invade their target victims at Agoro community in Sango Ota, Ogun State, a gang of suspected armed robbers met their Waterloo as operatives of Ogun State Police Command caught them off guard and thwarted their plot.

That was on May 12, 2022 when Segun Azeez, 26, was thrown into the cell while his soulmates escaped.

The Sango Ota Divisional Police Headquarters’ response followed a tip alerting that the suspects were planning to attack the community.

Police Public Relations Officer of the Ogun State Police Command, Mr Abimbola Oyeyemi, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, says the Divisional Police Officer of Sango ota division, Mr Saleh Dahiru, a Superintendent of Police, promptly moblised his patrol team and moved to the suspects hideout at Abanikole junction.

“Recovered from the arrested suspect are one locally made double barrel pistol and one live cartridge. On interrogation, the suspect confessed that he was planning with other members of his gang to attack some houses in Agoro community before police swooped on them and got him arrested.

“Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police Lanre Bankole, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to state criminal investigation and intelligence department for discreet investigation. He also directed that other members of the gang must be hunted for and brought to book,” he said.
