The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, in a statement on Monday, said the suspects were arrested on Wednesday during a patrol in the Surulere area of the state.

He said the suspects, who were mechanic apprentices in the neighborhood, were arrested after a series of reports about their criminal activities.

Hundeyin said, “The suspects were arrested on Wednesday, September 7, 2022, after a report was received that three Mercedes Benz SUVs brought in for repairs at a mechanic workshop were vandalized and their brain boxes and oil pumps stolen.

“The suspects, Sodiq Odugbade, 20, Aliyu Yusufa, 20, Ayinla Aliaminu 21, and Ayomide Ogunshiyi, 18, who were mechanic apprentices in the neighborhood have given useful information to the police. Efforts are on to arrest the receivers of these stolen items. The arrested suspects have since been arraigned.”

The state Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, assured residents of the relentless efforts of officers and men of command to bring crime to the barest minimum in the state.
