The Ogun State Police Command has arrested three suspects for allegedly vandalising the mast of a telecommunications company, MTN, at Ode-Remo, in the Remo North Local Government Area of the state.
According to the police, the suspects are Balogun Lukman, Sunday Kayode and Atanda Abiodun.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the suspects were arrested on Friday, April 27, 2018, by a patrol team of the Ishara division of the command led by the Divisional Police Officer, Yusuf Taiwo.
He said the suspects, who came in a blue Ford bus, with the number plate NRK 842 XA, were sighted at the mast site around 2am with the vandalised parts of the mast, including three heavy duty batteries and cutters.
Oyeyemi said when the suspected vandals sighted the policemen, they took to their heels.
He explained that the police, however, gave the suspects a hot chase.
The police spokesperson said while three were arrested, two escaped.
“The state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, has ordered a full scale investigation into the case. He has asked that the two fleeing suspects be apprehended,” he added.
