on



Operatives of the Ogun State Police Command have arrested three armed robbery suspects who invaded the Computer Village in Abeokuta, the state capital on April 12, 2023.

The suspects, Ajayi Kayode, Habeeb Idowu and Temitayo Oresanya, had reportedly invaded the computer village and killed one trader in the process.

They were, however, arrested on Saturday in their hideout in the Abule Ake area of Kemta.

PUNCH Metro reported that suspected robbers numbering about eight had on April 12, 2023, invaded the market and killed a trader.

The traders later gathered courage, pursued the robbers and apprehended one of them.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement on Sunday, said the three suspects were arrested following a tip-off received by policemen attached to the Kemta Divisional Headquarters.

Oyeyemi said the Divisional Police Officer, CSP Adeniyi Adekunle, mobilised his men and moved to the scene where the three suspects were arrested.

According to the PPRO, two of the suspects have confessed their participation in the robbery, while the third, Oresanya, affirmed to be a member of the same cult group with them, claimed that he did not participate in the operation.

He said, “The suspects, Ajayi Kayode, Habeeb Idowu and Temitayo Oresanya were arrested following information received by policemen attached to Kemta Divisional Headquarters that the suspects have been hibernating at the Abule Ake area of Kemta for quite some time now to evade police arrest.

“Upon the information, the DPO of Kemta Division, CSP Adeniyi Adekunle, mobilised his men and moved to the scene where the three suspects were apprehended.

“Two of the suspects have confessed their participation in the robbery, while the third one Temitayo Oresanya, though affirmed to be a member of the same cult group with them, claimed that he did not participate in the robbery.

“Oresanya stated further that Ajayi Kayode and Habeeb Idowu came to his house at Abule Ake to hide from the police after their robbery escapade.”

The PPRO, however, said the state Commissioner of Police, Olanrewaju Oladimeji, had ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the State Criminal Investigation Department for further investigation.
