The robbers who were robbing some road users in front of the Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministry, had fled upon sighting the Police but arrested when a moving truck on the Expressway knock down two of them while being chased by the Police.
The suspected robbers seriously wounded before they were eventually arrested alive, are Sola Bilaminu and Ibrahim Sandi – both of no fixed address.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the victims of the robbery operation have identified the suspects as those who attacked them while the stolen items have also been returned to the owners.
Adejobi, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), said the Commissioner of Police, Abdulmajid Ali, lauded the Police operatives for their commitment and courage while the suspects would be transferred to the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) in Abeokuta for investigation.
According to him, Ali has directed that the Ogun state stretch of the expressway should be adequately policed regularly to protect road users who ply it by night.
“We are assuring the good people of Ogun State and all road users in the state of adequate security of lives and property as police teams have been detailed to police the major expressways within the state,” Adejobi said.
