Four able bodied robbery suspects have been paraded by the oyo state police command Headquarters, Eleyele Ibadan, these robbers were in possession of women’s underwear and other personal effects being displayed as part of items allegedly stolen from a shop   at sango area of Ibadan.

The robbers had burgled  the shop successfully and allegedly stolen the items, but they ran out of luck as vigilant policemen, through much investigation, traced them to their hideout at Apete area in Ido Local Government Area of the state.
The suspects whose names were given as Godbless Oluku, 26, Alaka Babatunde, 23, Benjamin Ocran Segun 18, and Jamiu Alabi, 38, up to the time they were being paraded alongside other suspects could still not believe how possible they were out after leaving the scene.  

As they were sad that they would likely spend some time behind bars if found guilty of the offense, the owner of the burgled shop was full of thanks to the state police command led by the Mr. Adeleye Oyebade Commissioner of Police, for their hard work which led to arrest of the suspects and recovery of her wares which had been carted away by the hoodlums.

While speaking with Vanguard after the parade of the suspects, Bolanle Ogunmiye said after the end of sales on Thursday, she closed her shop and left for her house. But, unknown to her, the hoodlums had gained access to her shop and parked her wares.
She said, “the burglars forced themselves into my shop between Thursday and Friday, but I was not aware until Saturday, When I got to my shop on they had emptied it. With my estimate, they stole goods worth well over N150,000. Among the items they stole include a point of sale (POS) machine, cosmetics, women’s underwears and many other things.”
Ogunmiye thanked the police command for wiping her tears away by recovering all the items, adding that if not for the vigilance of the police, the burglars would have succeeded in stealing the items, wrecking her life and leaving indelible scars on her. Only God can tell if she could have recovered from the loss she would incur.
One of the suspects who refused to talk and stubbornly refused to mention his name confessed, “we went to rob on Friday and later burgled the shop at Sango. We were caught by men of Oodua People’s Congress who later handed us over to the police”.

He also confessed being an ex-convict for stealing and that he found it extremely difficult to quit stealing after serving a six month jail term because there was nothing he could do.
According to him, the items include 50 pairs of assorted shoes, 15 pairs of female pants, 8 wristwatches, 6 necklaces, one big iron cutter, two POS credit card machines and 41 unused Etisalat sim cards.

Among the thirteen suspects paraded include alleged robbery syndicate from whom dangerous weapons were recovered. The state police boss explained that the “command’s commitment to visibility policing through intensive patrol and stop and search manifested in the arrest recently of a gang of armed robbers who until their arrest were responsible for the spate of robbery attacks in Ibadan metropolis and its environs. The robbery syndicate had planned to carry out other robbery operations in some parts of the state when an anti crime team of the Alakia/Adenubi Division on routine patrol of the town intercepted the gang thereby foiling other robbery attacks they intended to carry out”. He noted that four suspects who allegedly specialized in using motorcycles to rob victims were arrested in the process and items found on them include a locally-made pistol, two live cartridges and assorted criminal charms.
The names of the suspects, according to him, are Olayinka Olamide, 24, Kamoru Opeyemi, 23, Michael Emeka, 24 and Olaniyi Oyeniyi, 25.

Dangerous weapons were allegedly recovered from them. While assuring that all the suspects would be charged to court, the CP appreciated the support of members of the public and enjoined them to continue to support the police in their resolve to fight criminality in the state.
