On receiving the distress call, the DPO Ibafo SP Abiodun Ayinde led his anti-robbery team to the scene where the suspects on sighting the policemen escaped through the nearby bush.
The police didn’t relent in their efforts to apprehend the hoodlums and their efforts paid off on the 12th of December 2019 when intelligence investigation revealed that the hoodlums were hibernating somewhere in Shimawa area.
The DPO and his operatives moved to the area where the three suspects were subsequently apprehended. And items recovered from them are 12 different types of Android and iPhones as well as wristwatches which the victims later identified as their robbed property.
While the investigation was ongoing, the command got information about earlier robbery escapades of the suspects somewhere in Osun state.

The Cp also warned that any criminal who choose to come to Ogun state with the intention to perpetrate any form of crime will have him or herself to blame as the command is ready to take the battle to the doorstep of the criminals
