By Adeola Olanrewaju

An armed robbery suspect, Waheed Ijiyemi, was on Tuesday arrested by men of Ogun State Police command while on his way to carry out robbery operation.

The suspect, according to a statement by the command's Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, was arrested while the DPO Onipanu division, CSP Bamidele Job, was on routine patrol with his men and sighted the suspect on an unregistered Bajaj motorcycle. 

According to Oyeyemi, "immediately the suspect sighted the policemen, he abandoned the motorcycle and took to his heels. He was hotly chased and arrested".

"The small bag with him was searched and a cut to size locally made pistol with ten live cartridges was recovered there in".

"On interrogation, the suspect confessed been an armed robber, and that he was on his way to carry out operation before he was apprehended", the PPRO said.

Meanwhile, the State Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to state criminal investigation and intelligence department for discreet investigation.
