Theft robbery

Ogun residents foil robbery attempt, arrest three suspects

The arrest of the three suspected armed robbers has brought relief to the residents of Ewekoro and its environs who have been living in fear due to the activities of the robbery syndicate. The vigilance of the community members who promptly alerted the police to the incident and provided assistance in apprehending the suspects is commendable.

The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, reiterated the commitment of the state Police Command to ensuring the safety of lives and properties in the state. He urged members of the public to continue to cooperate with the police and report any suspicious activity in their communities.

Meanwhile, investigations are ongoing to determine the extent of the suspects' involvement in other robbery incidents in the state. The recovery of the locally fabricated double barrel pistol, live cartridges, expended cartridge, and motorcycles with questionable ownership is a testament to the nefarious activities of the robbery syndicate.

The Commissioner of Police, Frank Mba, has assured the public that the police will leave no stone unturned in their efforts to rid the state of criminal elements. He also commended the swift response of the police officers and the cooperation of the community members that led to the arrest of the suspects. The suspects will face the full wrath of the law if found guilty of the crime.
