Upon the report, the DPO Mowe Division, CSP Marvis Jayeola was said to have detailed his detectives to go after the hoodlums. 

The crack detectives after weeks of painstaking investigation were said to have been able to trace one of the suspected robbers to Ikire in Osun State where he was apprehended. His arrest was said to have led the police to arrest his other three accomplices.
