Men of the Nigeria Police Force on Sunday arrested two suspects, who were members of a gun-wielding armed robbery gang.

They were arrested while carrying out a robbery operation at OPIC Estate in Agbara, Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State.

The suspects, who were identified by the police as Olanrewaju Sikiru (28 years) and Olayemi Obisesan (25 years), were nabbed after a distress call was received by the DPO of Agbara divisional headquarters, SP Saleh Dahiru.

Upon the distress call, the DPO was said to have quickly mobilized his men and moved to the scene.

When the suspects sighted the policemen, Ogun State police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said “the robbers opened fire on them and the team retaliated."
