Ogun police arrest three brothers for robbery in Ijebu Ode

Men of the Ogun State Police Command have arrested three brothers and one other for allegedly carrying out series of robbery operations in the Ijebu-Ode area of the state.

The suspects, Hammed Jagbojagbo, Idris Jagbojagbo , Tobi Jagbojagbo and Tosin Ogundeko, were arrested following a distress call received at Igbeba divisional headquarters.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed this in a statement on Monday.

Oyeyemi said policemen were informed that armed robbers had invaded the shop of a premier lotto agent at the Odi-Olowo area of Ijebu-Ode and robbed the agent of N90,000.

Oyeyemi said “the robbers also snatched a bajaj motorcycle belonging to one Clement Conleth.

“Upon the distress call, the DPO Igbeba division, CSP Musiliu Doga, quickly led his patrol team to the scene, gave the robbers a hot chase and succeeded in arresting one of them by name Tosin Ogundeko from whom the Bajaj motorcycle was recovered.

“The arrested Tosin Ogundeko subsequently led detectives to their hideout in Epe, Lagos State, where the remaining three were apprehended; while one of them, simply identified as Tosin, a.k.a socket, escaped.”

The PPRO stated that the suspects confessed to being responsible for various motorcycle snatching operations in Ijebu-Ode and its environs.

He added that the suspects confessed further that they are all based in Epe but chose Ijebu-Ode as their area of operation.

According to Oyeyemi, one cut-to-size locally-made gun and one Bajaj motorcycle were recovered from the suspects.

He, however, said the Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, had ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the State Criminal Investigation Department for discreet investigation.

Oyeyemi said the commissioner had also directed a massive manhunt for the fleeing member of the gang.
