Robbery Suspect Arrested While Planning Operation


A 26-year-old armed robbery suspect, Segun Azeez, was, last Thursday, arrested by men of the Ogun State Police Command while planning for robbery operation.

The suspect was said to be planning to carry out the alleged robbery act with others now at large before he ran out of luck.

This was contained in a press release, AZ:5310/OGS/PRO/VOL.7/11015/05/2022, by the Ogun Police image-maker, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi.

The suspect was arrested following an information received by policemen at the Sango Ota Divisional Headquarters that armed robbers were planning to attack Agoro Community of Sango Ota.


Upon the information, the DPO Sango Ota Division, SP Saleh Dahiru, quickly mobilised his patrol team and moved to the suspect’s hideout at Abanikole junction where the suspect was arrested while others escaped.

Oyeyemi stated in the release that one locally-made double barrel pistol and one live cartridge were recovered from the armed robbery suspect.

“On interrogation, the suspect confessed that he was planning with other members of his gang to attack some houses in Agoro Community before police swooped on them and got him arrested,” it was stated in the release.

The Ogun Police PPRO said the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Lanre Bankole, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for discreet investigation.

Oyeyemi further disclosed that the Commissioner of Police has also directed that other members of the gang must be hunted for and brought to book.
