According to a statement released by DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, the state police command’s spokesperson, the suspects were apprehended after the Dpo shagamu divisional headquarters received a distress call at about 2 a.m., stating that a branch of the Redeemed Christian Church Of God, located at GRA Shagamu, was being attacked by suspected robbers.

“The Dpo Sagamu division, CSP Okiki Agunbiade, deployed his men and the local vigilante to the location after receiving a distress call, but the robbers had gone over the fence before the police arrived.”

During their search of the surrounding bush, the cops discovered a Lexus Saloon car with the registration number KJA 469 EP parked near the church in a get-away position.

The operators assumed the vehicle had been parked by the suspects and set up surveillance in the area, waiting to see who would come for it at that unusual hour.

The two arrived after a five-hour wait, and while attempting to pull the vehicle away, the policemen swooped down on them and grabbed them.

Two iron bars, similar to those found at the crime scene, were discovered when the vehicle was searched. This raised their suspicions even further, and the two guys were led to the church, where the CCTV tape was shown, and the two suspects were seen breaking into the church.

Following the viewing of the video evidence, the two suspects had no choice but to confess to the crime. ”

Cp Edward Awolowo Ajogun, the state Commissioner of Police, who praised his men’s professionalism, has ordered an in-depth inquiry into the case with the goal of charging the suspects in court as soon as possible, according to Oyeyemi.
