The Ogun State Police Command has arrested a suspected robber who dressed like a herdsman during the robbery operation in Abeokuta.

Abimbola Oyeyemi, Police Public Relations Officer in the state, in a statement, said the arrest of the suspect, Biodun Rasheed, followed a distress call received by policemen attached to Kemta divisional headquarters that robbers were operating at Mile 6 along Ajebo Road Abeokuta.

Oyeyemi said after receiving the distress call, the Divisional Police Officer of Kemta division, CSP Opebiyi Sunday, quickly mobilised his patrol team, which was joined by the men of So-Safe corps and Vigilante Group of Nigeria.

“On sighting the security men, the robbers took to their heels, but they were chased and one of them, Biodun Rasheed, who dressed like Fulani herdsmen to hide his identity, was arrested,” the statement read.

“He is currently helping the police in their efforts to apprehend the remaining members of the gang.”

Lanre Bankole, the State’s Commissioner of Police, ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for discreet investigation.

Bankole warned criminals in the state to either turn a new leave or relocate from the state, as Ogun will be very hot for them henceforth.
