A suspect on the wanted list of the Ogun State Police Command, Christian Peter, has been arrested after months on the run.
The suspect, who was described as a notorious cultist and armed robber, was apprehended during a routine patrol on Mowe-Ofada road on Tuesday.
Police spokesman, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement on Wednesday said, “The suspect who has been on wanted list of the command for quite some time now was arrested while the DPO Mowe division, CSP Folashade Tanaruno, was on routine patrol of Mowe/Ofada road with the divisional anti robbery team and sighted the suspect in the premises of an hotel at Olororo area of Mowe with a waist bag.
“On sighting the policemen, the suspect made an attempt to escape but was quickly obstructed and apprehended.
“The waist bag in his possession was searched immediately, and a locally made double barrel pistol loaded with four live cartridges was recovered there in. He is one the hoodlums terrorizing Mowe/Ofada axis in recent time.”
