Security man arrested while planning to rob employer in Ogun State
A 47-year-old security man has been arrested by the Ogun State Police Force for allegedly conspiring with two area boys to rob his employer.
The suspect identified as Adamu Ibrahim is a security man attached to Inspiration Filling Station at Matogun area of Agbado in Ifo Local Government Area of the state.
Ibrahim was arrested following a report by the two area boys, Ajibola Yusuf and Bakare Ifakayode who reported at Agbado Divisional Headquarters that they received a call from the suspect telling them the manager of the filling station will be leaving the station at about 8:00pm with a huge amount of money running to 3 million naira.
According to the Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the suspect who thought the area boys are armed robbers gave out information on where and how to rob and kill the manager of the filling station where he works.
“Upon the information, the DPO Agbado Division SP Kehinde Kuranga advised them to continue playing along with the suspect while he detailed his detectives to be on his trail,” Oyeyemi said per Vanguard.
“Unknown to the suspect, he was continuously calling the duo, giving them the description of the manager and the route he will be passing through 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 thought he can confide in them to carry out another robbery which he will benefit from.”
The Commissioner of Police, Edward Awolowo Ajogun has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department(SCIID) for further investigation.
