One Biodun Rasheed has disguised as a Fulani herdsman to rob at Mile 6, along Ajebo road, Abeokuta, Ogun State, the police said on Thursday.
Abimbola Oyeyemi, the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, said Rasheed was arrested on Wednesday after a distress call was received by policemen attached to Kemta division at about 3:30 am.
CSP Opebiyi Sunday, the DPO of Kemta division, while reacting to the distress call, mobilized his men, who were joined by men of the So-Safe Corps and those of the Vigilante Group of Nigeria and moved to the scene.
Oyeyemi said the suspects fled when they sighted the security men, saying, however, that they were chased and “Biodun Rasheed, who dressed like a Fulani herdsman to hide his identity was arrested on the spot.”
The State Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, said the suspect will be taken to state CIID for discreet investigation, warning criminals to relocate, as Ogun would “be very hot for them henceforth.”
