The joint operation teams of the Ogun State Police Command and OP MESA attached to 35 Artillery Brigade Alamala, Abeokuta, have intercepted and arrested a gang of young graduates that robbed and snatched a Toyota Highlander at Festac Town Lagos on February 4.
A statement by the Police Public Relations Officer of the state command, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, on Saturday, said the suspects were arrested at the Ibafo area of Ogun State at about 8.30pm of the day of the robbery.
The statement explained that the suspected armed robbers,who were on top speed after the operation along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, in their bid to escape, were intercepted by the joint operation teams, who were on their routine patrol along the same expressway.
Adejobi added, “The teams forced the moving vehicle to stop when they noticed the suspicious attitudes of the occupants, who were eventually found to be armed robbers.
“The suspected armed robbers had kidnapped the owner of the snatched car(name withheld) and moved with the car before they dropped him along the road, having used him to operate the security device fixed on the said car.
“The vehicle was demobilised and stopped at a point along the expressway but the suspects hired the services of a rewire(technician) to start the engine again,and continued their movement before the arrest.
“Amuche Chukwuemeka, 22, who is a graduate of the Federal Polytechnic, Nekede, Owerri in Imo State, is the ring leader; Blessing Edottie, 26, from Bayelsa State, and Santos Peter, 25, from Delta State, are graduates of various schools, as claimed by them, were all arrested for this crime.”
The PPRO said the suspects had confessed to the crime and were helping the police in their investigation.
He explained that the acting Commissioner of Police in the state, Haliru Gwandu, has ordered that the case be transferred to Lagos State Police Command, where the robbery took place for proper investigation.
The statement quoted Gwandu to have commended the joint operation teams of the Police and Nigerian Army for the good job and charged other operational outfits in the state to add more pep in achieving adequate security of lives and property in Ogun State.
