The Osun State Police Command’s Dada Estate Division has arrested two suspected armed robbers.
Around 2 a.m. on Saturday, May 7, armed suspects allegedly arrived at the home of Adedayo Adedamola aka Fryo in Adetunji Estate.
When they arrived, they were claimed to be armed with pump-action rifles and other lethal weaponry. They then kidnapped Fryo’s family and kept them at gunpoint.
In an unexpected twist, their victim overpowered and disarmed them.
The pair managed to flee, but were captured and turned over to the Dada Estate Division’s Divisional Police Officer (DPO).
During the robbery operation, the police sources disclosed that the Dada Estate Division had received a distress call about their activities and immediately swung into action and with efforts from the P.R.U and the local vigilantes, they were apprehended.
“They have been handed over to the DPO, Dada Police Station for his preliminary investigation and onward handover to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) for their comprehensive investigation activities,” a police source said.
