Police officers in Ogun state have apprehended some armed robbers who robbed a woman N500,000 and other valuables.

The three armed men are also accused of being land grabbers.

The suspects, Wasiu Adenuga, Michael John and Moruf Alaba, were among eight suspected land grabbers, who invaded a building site under construction and snatched a bag containing the sum of N500,000 and two handsets valued at N40,000, from the female owner.

Spokesperson of the commmad, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, who disclosed this in a statement on Sunday, June 20, said the suspects were arrested on Friday following a report lodged at the Odogbolu Divisional Police Headquarters by one Kemi Olukoya.

According to the complainant, she was on her new site supervising construction workers when a group of men invaded the place, started shooting indiscriminately and chased away the workers. 

“She stated further that the hoodlums also snatched at gunpoint her bag containing the sum of N500,000 and her telephones valued at N40,000,” the statement read.

“Upon the report, the DPO, Odogbolu Division, SP Adeniyi Awokunle, mobilised his men and moved to the scene, and on getting there, the hoodlums were seen escaping through the nearby bush, but they were chased after and one of them, Wasiu Adenuga, was apprehended,” she stated.

“Further combing of the bush led to the arrest of two others namely: Michael John and Moruf Alaba, while three Bajaj motorcycles that they used for the operation were also impounded. 

The PPRO added that the Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun, had ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the state Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for discreet investigation.

Oyeyemi said the CP has also directed manhunt for the fleeing members of the gang.
