Four suspected armed robbers have been arrested by operatives of the Ogun State-owned Community, Social Orientation and Safety Corps (So-Safe Corps).

They were arrested on Friday at Olokopupo, Atan, Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of the State.

The suspects, Ikechukwu Oligbo (35 years), Fidelix Nwankwo (32 years) and Chinedu Eze (37 years), were among the gang of seven who reportedly ransacked three houses in the said community.

In a statement made available to newsmen on Saturday by the Corps’s Director of information, Moruf Yusuf, it was revealed that the suspects were sighted by a patrol team of the So-Safe Corps from Atan divisional headquarters.

According to Yusuf, the suspected armed robbers were sighted “while cutting the security wire of a building.”

“The officers waited patiently till they went through the back perimeter fence. They then confronted the officers having sighted them,” he explained.

Yusuf added that the patrol team later reinforced to the area of the incident, stating that “upon sighting the officers in their full actions, the suspected armed robbers took to their heels and three out of the seven syndicates were apprehended, while the remaining four are at large.”

Yusuf quoted the So-Safe Commander, Soji Ganzallo, as stating that one 24-year-old Nuru Ahmed, a resident of Alaba Rago, Lagos State, was traced and arrested for allegedly buying stolen phones from the gang.

The said Ahmed was arrested with a number of stolen items found in his possession.

He added that “he confessed to the crime.”

“During preliminary investigation, the suspects confessed without torture that one of their members called Ugor, who is at large, is in possession of their cut-to-size locally-made pistol.

“Items recovered from the suspects are: four iPhones, one metallic blue Toyota Rav 4 (marked KSF 92 GT), two Tecno phones, two black belts, one black fez cap, one wrist watch, two brown leather wallets and a cash sum of N4,840,”
Yusuf narrated.

The four suspects and all exhibits recovered had since been handed over to the police in Atan divisional headquarters.
