He said, “they were dispossessed of their personal belongings which included Infinix phone valued at N25,000, UBA ATM card, and So-safe Corps identity card.”
He stated further that they raised alarm which attracted passerby and one of the hoodlums was apprehended by members of the public.
“Upon the report, the DPO Mowe division SP Marvis Jayeola quickly dispatched his detectives to the scene where the arrested member of the gang was handed over to the police”.
“Having taken possession of the suspect, the operatives embarked on an intelligent based investigation which led to the arrest of the second suspect”.
Oyeyemi added, “a locally made double-barrel shotgun was recovered from them”.
