There was a mild drama, yesterday, when the Police in Ogun State arrested a suspected robber with bullet wounds in a church in Ota, Ado-Odo-Ota Local Government Area of the state.

The robber was said to be one of the members of the gang that killed four members of vigilance group  during  operation in Ifo community, last weekend.


The state Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Muyiwa Adejobi,  who disclosed this also said three suspected  robbers were killed during a gun battle around Oko-Bale, Ilogbo also in the town.

Vanguard gathered that the robber had sought  refuge in the church after he allegedly escaped  from Police arrest with  bullet wounds before he met his waterloo.

About 20 armed robbers had  on Saturday  killed five members of the vigilante service during  a robbery operation in Ifo area before the police chased them away.

While explaining how the suspected robber was arrested, the PPRO  said that his men  acted on a tip-off  that led to   the arrest of the suspect while taking  treatments of  his injured right leg in a church in Ota area of the state.

Adejobi said; " The suspect had with other members of the gang escaped with bullets wounds from superior fire power of the police during the said operation.

"It would be recalled that the command had placed a manhunt on the wounded fleeing robbers and particularly seeking information from members of the public on their whereabouts.

"The robber, who was arrested in a church in Ota, after a tip-off, sustained bullet injury on his right leg during the robbery operation in Ifo.

"His arrest has led to arrest of additional three members of the gang including an herbalist as well as an armourer, " he said.

While commenting on the three robbers killed, the PPRO said  that the robbers had earlier robbed and attacked officials of vigilante services in the area before the encounter with police.
