400-level OOU student accused of running over police officer at check point in Ogun

Operatives of the Ogun State Police Command say they have arrested a 400-level student of  Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago Iwoye, Olabisi Oluwatimilehin for allegedly making an attempt to kill a policeman on duty along Ijebu Ode – Ibadan road with a car.

Crime report from the command indicated that the suspect was arrested on Wednesday the 1st of June 2022.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi said the suspect was seen on the fateful day driving a fully artificial tinted Toyota Camry car with registration number plate LND 929 GX loaded with some household properties towards Ibadan Oyo State.

He said policemen flagged down the car for checking since the occupants are not visible from outside.

But instead of the driver to stop, Oyeyemi added the suspect accelerated and intentionally knocked down one Inspector Idowu Moses attached to PMF 71 Awa Ijebu consequent upon which the said inspector sustained a serious bodily injury and passed out momentarily.

He explained that after he had knocked down the policeman, the suspect continued his journey towards Ibadan, believing that the policeman was dead.

He however said the seriously injured policeman was rescued by his other colleagues.

Oyeyemi said further, “He was taken to the hospital for treatment while others started tracing the suspect towards Ibadan road.

“He was eventually arrested at a village close to Ibadan and brought down to Ijebu Ode area command.

Meanwhile, the state Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, has ordered that the suspect be charged to court as as soon as possible.

He also warned that attacking his men while on duty will not be tolerated, therefore, members of public should desist from such criminal act.
