Three in Police net for robbing Ogun poly students


Operatives of Ogun State Police Command have arrested three suspects for allegedly robbing students of Gateway Polytechnic Sapaade, in Remo North local government area of Ogun State.

The command Public Relations Officer, Omolola Odutola, disclosed this in Abeokuta.

It would be recalled that between late November and early December last year, multiple robbery attacks were recorded in the school, leading to the deaths of two students and several others were reportedly injured.

These attacks reportedly led the school management to suspend physical classes and directed the students to stay out of school for two weeks.

Following a report of a break-in to the residence of some students in the Obalande area of Isara Remo on January 8, 2024, Musa Adamu, Marasa Aliu, and Yahaya Muhammed were arrested by the police in connection to the crime.

It was learned that a 3kg cylinder and about three mattresses suspected of being stolen from the students’ apartment were recovered by the police.

Speaking on the arrest, the police spokesperson said some students returned to the school after the holiday to discover that their apartments had been ransacked and that their refrigerator, among other items, had been stolen.

“The students just returned from holidays and discovered that their apartment had been broken into. There was a reported case of some stolen items. Our investigation led us to the arrest of Adamu and two other suspects in the crime,” Odutola said.

Before the recent arrest, at least eight suspected robbers were apprehended in connection with robberies and killings in the school between late November and early December last year.

Also, the command was said to have recovered two Lexus cars and other items stolen during some of the attacks.
