The Ogun State Police Command in Nigeria has arrested four individuals suspected of being members of a robbery syndicate that had been terrorizing Sango-Ota and its surrounding areas. The suspects were identified as Sherrif Kamoru, Rabiu Seyidu, Opeyemi Adebayo, and Ajibola Fakolade.
They were apprehended after they allegedly stole a man’s two phones and siphoned N600,000 from his bank account using the bank’s app installed on one of the phones. The victim reported that he was attacked by some armed hoodlums around 5.30 am in the Joju area of Sango-Ota. The hoodlums dispossessed him of his two phones after inflicting a machete cut on his neck.
The DPO Sango-Ota Division, CSP Saleh Dahiru, detailed his detectives to technically trace the suspects and bring them to justice. The detectives located the hideout of the suspects and apprehended four of them.
Recovered from them were one cutlass, one Techno POP 2f belonging to the victim, and a nose mask used by one of them during the operation. The suspects were transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department for further investigation and diligent prosecution by the state Commissioner of Police, CP Olanrewaju Oladimeji.
