A 47-year-old guard, Adamu Ibrahim has been arrested by men of Ogun state police command while planning with two other men to rob his boss in Agbado.
The suspect who is a security man attached to Inspiration fueling station situated at Matogun area of Agbado in Ifo local government area of the state was arrested following a report by the duo of Ajibola Yusuf and Bakare Ifakayode who reported at Agbado divisional headquarters that they received a phone call from the suspect that the manager at the fueling station will be leaving the station at about 8:00 pm with N3 million.
They reported further that the suspect who described the manager and his motorcycle to them instructed them to ambush, rob him of the money and kill him so as not to trace the incident to them.
They stated further that the suspect believes that being area boys, they will be useful for him to realize his devilish plan, but they are though area boys, they are not armed robbers.
Upon the information, the DPO Agbado division, SP Kehinde Kuranga asked them to continue playing along with the suspect while he detailed his detectives to be on his trail.
Unknown to the suspect, he was continuously calling the duo, telling them the description of the manager and the route he will be passing when the police swooped on him and got him arrested.
Initially, he denied planning any robbery with anybody, but when confronted with his supposed accomplice, he owns up to the commission of the crime.
On further interrogation, he confessed to the police that the two people he contracted resemble those who earlier robbed the same station years ago and that was the reason why he thinks he can confide in them to carry out another robbery which he will benefit from.
Meanwhile, the commissioner of police CP Edward Awolowo Ajogun has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation.
The CP therefore appealed to members of the public especially business owners to always have a proper back ground check of anyone they want to employ in order not to employ criminal unknowingly.
