The Ogun Police Command on
Wednesday arrested one Adegbite Taoreed for allegedly robbing one
Mr Wale Okeyingbo of his car.
Taoreed was arrested with one other accomplice, Taiwo Raheem, in
Soyoye, a suburb of Abeokuta.
Mr Abimbola Oyeyemi, the Ogun Police Public Relations Officer,
paraded the suspect at the premises of the Federal State Anti Robbery
Squad (FSARS), Magbon, Abeokuta.
Oyeyemi said that policemen at Lafenwa Division received a distress
call from Oke Odo community in Soyoye area of Abeokuta that armed
robbers numbering about six had invaded the community.
“The Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in Lafenwa Division, CSP
Mohammed Odunlami, mobilised his anti-robbery team and went to
the scene.
“Before they got there the robbers had succeeded in robbing one of
the residents, Mr Wale Okeyingbo, of his Land Rover vehicle.
“The DPO and his team gave them hot chase. The police men and the
bandit engaged in gun battle at Oke Ata Housing Estate area in
Abeokuta.
“At the end of the encounter, one of the robbers was gunned down,
sustaining a very serious injury.
“He was arrested together with another member of the gang.
“Surprisingly, the suspected leader of the gang, Taoreed, happens to
be close door neighbour of the victim. He is also a landlord in that
area.
“He led his gang member to his house and forcefully collected his car
key from him as well as the document of the vehicle before they
drove the vehicle away,” he said.
The victim told Ogun Today that he and
Taoreed were landlords in the same community.
“The robbers came to my house, shooting sporadically, while
demanding for the key to my car. I gave them through the window.
“They also said they wanted to see my face, I pleaded with them
before they left,” he said.
The victim commended the police for a job well done, saying that he
had already lost hope of recovering his car.
