Some suspected land grabbers on Wednesday attacked policemen in the Babaode-Onibuku community of Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State.

The policemen were attacked when they stormed the community to restore peace after the suspected notorious land grabber were “unleashing violence on the people.”

Abimbola Oyeyemi, the State Police Public Relations Officer, said four of the gang, namely, Najimu Ojumola (42), Monday Olaleye (25), Kehinde Martins (34) and Felix John (27), were arrested.

They were said to have invaded the village with dangerous weapons, holding residents hostage.

Upon a distress call, the DPO of Onipanu division, CSP Bamidele Job, mobilized his men and moved to the scene for a rescue operation.

“On getting to the scene, the hoodlums launched an attack on the policemen and injured one ASP Tajudeen Adeleke and Inspector Babatunde Olayiwola, but they were later subdued, and two amongst them, Najimu Ojumola and Monday Olaleye were apprehended.

“While the policemen were taking the arrested hoodlums to the station, their colleagues ambushed the policemen at Idiroko road, and attacked them with a view to freeing the arrested ones. They were subsequently dispatched and the duo of Felix John and Kehinde Martins were equally arrested,” Oyeyemi said.

According to Oyeyemi, eight expended cartridges, one live cartridge, one cutlass, three Bajaj Motorcycles and one Toyota Corolla with registration number, FST 42 FT were recovered from the suspects, it was said.

Meanwhile, the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun, has ordered the transfer of the case to the state CIID for discreet investigation.
