Three men were apprehended by So-Safe Corps operatives in Ogun State for allegedly robbing residents of Onibudo town in the state’s Ifo Local Government Area.
They were apprehended after a victim called the corps’ operatives at the Adiyan-Alausa Onibudo division in Ifo.
The victim reported to the corps, around 4 p.m. on Tuesday, “how he was robbed of his belongings at Mercy Avenue, Onibudo on Saturday, September 17, 2022.”
According to the So-Safe Corps spokesman, Moruf Yusuf, one of the suspects, Opeoluwa Alade Sunday, 23, was apprehended after the corps’ covert security operations in the division.
Yusuf revealed that Alade confessed to the crime and later led the team to Anthony Garden Hotel, Doland Bus Stop, near Agege/Akute Motorpark, where his other co-conspirators were sleeping.
“Two other suspects in connection with the robbery case, Stanley and Hammed Isiaka, also known as Jack Omo Baala, were also apprehended,” he said.
“Meanwhile, the Corps is working to apprehend the remaining suspects, who have admitted to carrying guns.”
“During the preliminary investigation, the perpetrators admitted that on September 19th, a member of their team named ‘Osun’ allegedly killed a boy in Abe Igi, a matter that is currently being investigated by the Nigerian police.”
“The three robbery suspects, as well as the exhibits discovered with them – three laptop computers, two wedding rings, one wrist watch, and 32 yards of Ankara fabric – have been transferred to the police at Ajuwon divisional headquarters,” he added.
