The Ogun State Police Command has
arrested a gang of armed robbers, including a couple, who allegedly went to rob
in an estate at Abule Lemode in the Ijoko area of the state.
Our correspondent gathered that
the four suspects ─ Amache and Seun Augustine, Taiwo Dada and Ezekiel Alawode ─
were apprehended while allegedly robbing at Santos Crescent, Araromi Estate.

They were reportedly arrested at
about 9.30pm on Saturday, January 17.
Punch Metro learnt that the suspects, who were in possession of a
locally-made pistol, were first apprehended by the members of the local
vigilance group before they were handed over to the Agbado Police Division,
Ayinla, on Sunday.
Our correspondent gathered that it
was the couple ─ Amache and Seun ─ who had stayed in the estate for about a
year, that allegedly led the gang on the night of the incident.
They were said to have also
connived with one of the security men in the estate.
When Punch Metro visited
the area on Friday, one of the victims, Mr. Rasheed Akinwande, said the robbers
stole cash and recharge cards from his house.
He added that he knew Amache as a
bricklayer in the estate, but was surprised to know that the couple brought the
robbers to attack the residents.
He said, “It was at about 9pm when
they got to my apartment. They were two men and two women ─ Amache and his wife
with another man and woman. But the couple did not come inside my house.
Instead, two strange faces, who wore black jackets and jean, broke through my
windows, and pointed a gun at me.
“They asked everyone to lie down,
and they collected money ─ about N6,000 that they found in the house. They
demanded more, and they even packed the recharge cards which my wife was
selling. Few minutes later, we began to hear gunshots in the environment. The
robbers fled. But the local vigilance group apprehended them eventually.”
The General Secretary of the
estate’s community development association, Stephen Adesoji, said the
executives prevented an angry mob from lynching the suspects on the night.
He said, “Two of the suspects were
a husband and wife, and they live with us in the estate. They invited two
others to perpetrate the crime. It was the security man they connived with who
later alerted us that robbery was going on, and we informed the vigilance
group.”
Our correspondent was shown the
couple’s rented apartment. It was observed that the place was locked and dusty.
Amache, it was said, worked as a
bricklayer, while the woman was a full time housewife, who took care of the
union’s four children.
It was gathered that the suspects,
in their statements to the police, had confessed to the crime.
The Police Public Relations
Officer, DSP Muyiwa Adejobi, confirmed the arrest.
He added that the suspects had
been transferred to the State Criminal Investigations Department, Eleweran,
Abeokuta.
He said, “The suspects are now at
the SCID where further investigation is ongoing.”
