He added that nemesis caught up with them when a six-man gang invaded a new site in Imoru-Ijebu and held people of the area hostage.

He said, “The robbers dispossessed residents of their belongings ranging from laptops, 32 different phones, and a GLK Mercedes Benz car with registration number KRD 570 HM at gunpoint.

“One Ayoola Taiwo was also shot and wounded in his right knee by the robbers.

“Upon the report, the DPO Igbeba division, CSP Musiliu Doga, led his men to the scene but the robbers took to flight on sighting the policemen.

“They were hotly chased and one of them, Muyiwa Adebola, was arrested at the Olisa area of Ijebu-Ode and one of the robbed phones was recovered from him.

“On interrogation, he informed the police that the gang members were based in Lagos State, and he subsequently led detectives to the Mushin area of Lagos where the second one, Lukman Ogunmuyiwa, who also confessed his participation in the robbery was apprehended.

“Recovered so far from the two suspects are three HP laptops and three phones belonging to the victims.”

The PPRO, however, said the suspects have been transferred to State Criminal Investigation Departments on the order of the outgoing Commissioner of Police now AIG, Frank Mba for discreet investigation.
