Operatives of the Ogun State Police Command have arrested five new suspects in connection with the recent robbery attacks and killings in some parts of the state, particularly at the Gateway Polytechnic, Saapade.

The command also announced that it recovered two Lexus cars stolen during the recent robbery attacks.

The state Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alamutu, disclosed these on Wednesday while speaking on the security situation across the state.

Some suspected armed robbers recently invaded Ipara, Isara and Ode Remo communities hosting students of the Gateway Polytechnic, Saapade in Remo North Local Government Area of Ogun State, robbing and shooting some of the students.

According to Alamutu, operatives of the command in Remo North Division had received a distress call on 2/12/23 at about 3 am that some armed robbers were on a rampage within their community.

The Divisional Police Officer led his men to respond to the distress call and met a group of armed robbers.

He said that “there was an exchange of gunfire between the police and the armed men.

“In their bid to escape, they shot at four students who were walking along the road and made away with a Lexus car they had earlier snatched at gunpoint from another student.

“One of the victims of the gunshots reportedly died on his way to the hospital while the three others were treated and discharged.”

Alamutu added that, “Police later tracked the stolen Lexus car to the Oke Itoku area of Abeokuta, the state capital where it was recovered. Another Lexus car, discovered to have been snatched in the Ajuwon area of the state by the same gang, was also recovered

“Some members of the gang were later arrested through intelligence gathering while a member of another gang that robbed people of their phone at gunpoint was also nabbed.

“He had escaped into the bush upon the arrival of policemen at the scene but was later fished out with the help of the locals. As we speak, about eight police patrol teams now operate within the area,” Alamutu noted.
