Residents of Akobo area of Ibadan, in Oyo State on Wednesday, arrested one of the suspected armed robbers who terrorises the area.

The armed robber was arrested shortly after he and his gang robbed an eatery in the area.

The suspect who gave his name as Ayomide Adebayo was arrested after robbing an eatery around General Gas in Ibadan.

DAILY POST gathered that the suspect and his gang stormed the eatery and stole cash, phones and other valuables illegally from customers and the owner of the eatery.

Luck, however, ran out on them when one of the staff resisted them in their attempt to pack the money in their safe box.

In the process, one of the armed robbers escaped and joined the motorcyclist that was already waiting outside while the other one, who later identified himself as Ayomide Adebayo was caught.

The suspect was later taken to Akobo police station.

Our correspondent gathered that the suspect has confessed that he and his partner hired the motorcyclist who carried them to the scene.

Public Relations Officer of the State Police Command, Mr Adewale Osifeso when contacted promised to send details of the incident after being briefed.

Osifeso in a short message sent to DAILY POST on Wednesday said, “Good afternoon. I would get back to you please.”
