Spokesman for the Command, Mr. Benjamin Hundeyin said that the suspect, Charles Igbadoh ‘m’ was arrested by the policemen who have been on constant patrol of the area.
He said further investigation led to the arrest of the receivers of his stolen items, one Odinaka Obiadu ‘m’ and Micheal Adeniyi ‘m’.
According to Mr. Hundeyin, the suspects are currently assisting the Police in an ongoing investigation aimed at arresting other criminal elements terrorising innocent commuters in that axis.

Some few years ago, a young woman who was trying to escape being robbed at Ilubirin ran into a fast moving vehicle in the early hours of that day and died immediately, some weeks to her wedding ceremony.
