The armed robber apprehended by police in Ogun state

Two armed robbers have met their sad end in the hands of police officers in Ogun state during a shootout, while one other was arrested by the police.

The incident took place on on Wednesday.

According to the police, the armed robbery syndicate had invaded “FASTLINK’’ electronic and phone warehouse in Ijebu-Ode before they were confronted by the police.

This according to a statement by the command spokesperson, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi happened through a distress call received by the DPO Igbeba division, CSP Doga Najeem from a local vigilante leader, that the warehouse situated in Oyingbo area of Ijebu-ode has been invaded by dare devil robbers who were armed with dangerous weapons.

Oyeyemi said, “Upon the distress call, the DPO mobilized his patrol team in-conjunction with So-Safe-Corp, and moved to the scene.

“On sighting the policemen, the robbers engaged them in a gun battle for about an hour, at the end of which two members of the gang were fatally shot and one arrested. Others escaped in their standby vehicle with various degrees of gunshot injuries.

“On interrogation, the arrested one who identified himself as Isiaka Yakubu, an indigene of Yauri in Zamfara State claimed that the group was eight in number and they came from Lagos State where they have been hiding for some days before coming to Ijebu-ode for the operation”, Oyeyemi said.

Recovered from them are One locally-made gun, one iron cutter, two cutlasses, one iron chisel, as well as phones and electrical material worth N6 million which they removed from the warehouse.

The State Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun who commended his men for their swift response to the distress call, has ordered the immediate transfer of the case to the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for discreet investigation.

He also directed a massive hunt for the fleeing members of the gang with the view of bringing them to justice.

The CP while appealing to members of the public especially hospitals to report anybody seen with a gunshot injury to the police, also warned criminals to stop testing the will-power of the Command, as determination and resilience of officers and men to decisively deal with all forms of criminality in the state.
