Armed robbery: Police arrest 15 suspects, recover exhibits in Ondo State


The Police in Ondo State on Wednesday said they have arrested no fewer than 15 suspects for various crimes.

Mr Bolaji Salami, Commissioner of Police, made this known while speaking with newsmen in Akure on the command’s achievements in the last one month.

Salami, who explained that the suspects were involved in different crimes ranging from armed robbery, murder and rape, said they were arrested at different places across the state.

According to him, nine motorcycles, one pump action gun and one truck loaded with cement were recovered from the suspects.

“It’s about a month today when we showcased some of our achievements. Today, this is another display of our exploits within the month under review.

“It’s all so loathsome, so degenerating that some criminally-minded individuals still perceive Ondo State as a place that they can conveniently trade in criminality without being apprehended.

“I have tried to make criminals know that I am not in Ondo State for the comfort of its sunshine beauty but to decimate all awful acts of criminality in and around the state.

“For those criminals who have refused to leave Ondo State while I supervise the security architecture of the state, I have this warning for them.

“No criminal should hope that he can match the ardour or the professional ability of my men when it comes to fighting crimes and criminality,” Salami said.
