The Police Command in Ogun has arrested a notorious cultist and an armed robbery suspect, Christian Peter, in Mowe area of the state.

The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, stated this in a statement in Abeokuta on Wednesday.

Oyeyemi said that the suspect, who was arrested on Tuesday, had been on the wanted list of the command for some time.

He said that the suspect was arrested while the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Mowe division, CSP Folashade Tanaruno, was on routine patrol of the Mowe-Ofada Road with the divisional anti-robbery team.

“They sighted the suspect within the premises of a hotel at Olororo area of Mowe with a waist bag.

“The suspect made an attempt to escape on sighting the policemen, but he was quickly obstructed and apprehended.

“The waist bag in his possession was searched immediately, and a locally-made double barrel pistol loaded with four live cartridges was recovered from it.
“He is one of the hoodlums that has been terrorising the Mowe-Ofada axis in recent time,” he said.

Oyeyemi said that the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Lanre Bankole, had ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to the state Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for discreet investigation.
