”Following the report of an accident at Orile imo area, a police sergeant attached to the Traffic Section of the Owode Egba Divisional Headquarters was detailed to rescue the victims and recover the vehicles involved to the station.

But on getting to the scene, the suspects attacked the policeman and the towing vehicle driver with sledge hammer, stick and other dangerous weapons in order to prevent them from taking one of the vehicles involved  to the station for further investigation.

The policeman and the towing vehicle driver managed to escape from the scene and ran to the station with varying degrees of injuries.

The Divisional Police Officer,  Owode Egba division, CSP Olasunkanmi Popoola when hinted,  led his men to the place where he met the suspects who had already poured petrol on the towing vehicle and about setting it ablaze after removing  the  cash sum of #520,000 belonging to the towing vehicle driver.”

the statement in part reads.

Oyeyemi said three of the hoodlums were arrested while others escaped but the remaining petrol was recovered from them.

He added that the state Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole has ordered that those who escaped must be hunted for and brought to book. He further  directed that the arrested suspects be transferred to State Criminal Investigation Departments for further investigation and possible prosecution.
