Men of Ogun state Police Command on the 4th of April 2023, arrested one Akeem Adeleke for allegedly hijacking a truck loaded with industrial raw material along Lagos-Ibadan expressway at gun point.
The SUPREME learnt that, the
suspect was arrested following a distress call made to men of Federal Highway patrol stationed along the expressway by driver of the truck, who ran to the policemen and informed them that while driving his truck towards Ibadan, two unknown gunmen suddenly jumped into the vehicle and pushed him out.
He explained further that the hoodlums took over the vehicle from him and drove it towards Lagos.
Upon the complain, the patrol team started tracing the truck towards Lagos and they luckily sighted it somewhere along the road.
Having noticed that policemen are trailing them, one of the robbers who was driving the truck jumped out on motion, but fell down and hit his head against the tarred road and he died on the spot.
His accomplice, Akeem Adeleke was subsequently arrested and taken to Ewu-oliwo divisional headquarters.
The DPO Ewu-oliwo division, CSP Toyosi Bello accompanied the patrol team to the scene where the corpse of the dead robber was recovered to the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital morgue.
Recovered from the arrested suspect are; one locally made pistol, three live cartridges, two itel phones and some Criminal charms.
Meanwhile, former Ogun State Commissioner of Police, AIG Frank Mba, has directed that the suspect be transferred to State Criminal Investigation Departments for discreet investigation.
The CP therefore warned criminals to stay clear of Ogun state, as they will always met their waterloo in any part of the state.
