When Balita Company located at Sango Ota, Ogun State, sacked their Chief Security Officer for an undisclosed conduct, they never bargained for what awaiting the company until recently.
P.M.EXPRESS reports that the sacked Chief Security Officer of the company allegedly arranged armed robbers and invaded the company at Sango Ota, Ado Odo Ota Local Government area of Ogun State to loot. But the robbers were unfortunate as five of them were arrested by Police operatives from the Ogun State Command.
This was disclosed by SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, Police Public Relations Officer, Ogun State Command, who mentioned the suspects to include, Umar Haruna, Abbah Yahaya, Muritala Umar, Wale Fadeyi, and Segun Olofinmade and confirmed that they are now in Police custody undergoing interrogation over the robbery incident.
SP Oyeyemi stated that their arrest was possible following a distress call received by Policemen at Sango Divisional Headquarters at about 12:30 midnight, that a group of armed robbers numbering about ten, and armed with dangerous weapons had forcefully gained entrance into Balita Company and were packing away motor engines which the company is selling.
Upon the distress call, the DPO Sango Division, SP Saleh Dahiru, mobilized his men and moved into the area. On sighting the Policemen, the hoodlums who came with a Mitsubishi Canter bus with registration number LSR 414 YF, took to their heels but they were chased and five amongst them were apprehended while others escaped.
Preliminary investigation revealed that the robbery incident was masterminded by the former Chief Security Officer of the company, who was relieved of his duty about three months ago. The said former Chief Security Officer is presently on the run.
Oyeyemi stated that the Police recovered from the suspects a Mitsubishi Canter bus loaded with ten motor engines and cutlasses as exhibits.
