Theft robbery

Banker nabbed over connivance with armed robber to rob him of N3m belonging to his employer in Ogun

A worker of a microfinance bank in Abeokuta, Olagoke Dare, has been arrested by the operatives of the Ogun State Police Command for reportedly conspiring with another man to rob him of a cash of Three Million Naira belonging to his employer.

The suspect was apprehended after a distress call was sent to the police division in Ibara, stating that Olagoke Dare and one Mary Agbejo had been attacked by armed robbers on their way coming out of a commercial bank where they had gone to withdraw the money.

On receiving the distress call, the Divisional Police Officer, DPO, of Ibara, SP Segun Ajao, swiftly mobilized his men and moved to the area where one Idowu Tunde was reportedly apprehended.

The police spokesperson for Ogun State, Abimbola Oyeyemi, explained that the Tunde confessed to the crime, stating that it was Olagoke Dare who informed him that his employer would be sending him and one other person to withdraw the sum of N3m and they should come and rob them of the money.

The suspect was also reported to have said that it was the same Dare that gave him the toy pistol used for the operation.

Oyeyemi said," The suspect confessed that while Dare and his other colleague were in the bank, he had already hidden in their car which was deliberately left opened by Dare in accordance with their plan. While they got into the car, Idowu Tunde explained that he came out suddenly from the back seat and pointed the gun to the lady who was in possession of the money. But the lady noticed that the gun did not look original, consequent upon which she dragged the gun with him and raised alarm. It was the alarm that attracted people who pursued them and called the police".

The case was said to have been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department for further investigation.
