Police nab four notorious armed robbers in Ogun

Operatives of the Ogun State Police Command on Sunday nabbed four members of a notorious armed robbery syndicate in their hideouts.

The suspects; Sukanmi Tajudeen, Habeeb Oladimeji, Sunday Akintunde, and Ishola Samson were reported to have been terrorising the Mowe/Ofada areas in the Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of the state.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed this in a statement on Monday.

Oyeyemi said the suspects had been on the wanted list of the police command before their eventual arrest.

The PPRO said, “The suspects were arrested following an intelligence report received by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad about the hideout of the gang at Adesan area of Mowe.

“On getting the report, the officer-in-charge of SARS, Csp Tijani Muhammed, dispatched his operatives to the area and the hideout was professionally cordoned off for an operation which lasted for about an hour.

“At the end of the operation, the four suspects were apprehended while some members of the gang escaped through the nearby bush.”

Oyeyemi added that some items were recovered from the suspects during the operation including one locally made triplet barrel pistol, one locally made single barrel pistol, thirteen live cartridges, and one Bajaj motorcycle.

The spokesperson said a manhunt is ongoing for the fleeing members of the gang and other armed bandits in the state.
