The Ogun State Police Command has arrested an Arab, Ali Mohammed, for robbery.

Ali, according to state Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, was arrested by policemen attached to the Ibafo Police Division on Sunday at Moko near Ibafo around 2am.

Adejobi said, “The policemen had responded to a distress call from the area. About four armed men had burgled into a house and were robbing the occupants in the area. The policemen dislodged them and arrested one of them.

“The Commissioner of Police, Ikemefuna Okoye, has instructed the Divisional Police Officer in Ibafo station to look for the fleeing robbers and apprehend them; and also reduce crimes in the area.”

In a related development, Adejobi said divisions in the state raided black spots in their jurisdictions and arrested about 110 suspects.

The areas where the raids were carried out included Sagamu, Ijebu Ode, Ilaro, Ota and Abeokuta.

The PPRO added that the operation was supervised by the Deputy Commissioner of Police (Operations), Akpoebi Agberebi.

“The command worked on the intelligence gathered from the State Intelligence Bureau on dangerous black spots in Ogun State which propelled the raids and eventually led to the arrest of the suspects,” Adejobi added.
