A newly recruited Police Constable, David Friday, attached to Olofin Police Station in the Idanre local government area, has been arrested for armed robbery.

David was arrested alongside a soldier serving with the 32 Artillery Brigade, Nigeria Army, Owena Cantonment, Innocent Victor.

They were reportedly armed with a Jackknife and other dangerous weapons at Ojadale junction where they attacked and robbed some persons

Items they stole were N6000, one itel phone valued at N8500, 30 litres of petrol and N125, 000.

Ondo Police Commissioner, Bolaji Salami, who paraded the suspects, said David earlier stole an exhibit motorcycle at his duty post.

“He was being tried for that motorcycle theft when he was caught conspiring with a soldier to rob some people with a dagger. We paraded them and the victims identified them. Other victims came and identified them. When we are done with our investigation, we will charge them to court.”

The soldier denied involvement in the allegation saying he stepped back at the scene of the incident.

He said he was held for being on illegal duty.

David also denied robbing anybody.

Other suspects paraded were one Wasiu Lateef who was alleged to defile a teenager at an uncompleted building in Lapanu village and a suspected teenage kidnapper, Bello Ali, who could not explain what he was doing in a forest between USO and Ogbese.

A fake soldier, Desmond Ikechukwu, who impersonates the Army to intimidate members of the public, was also paraded.

Desmond who confessed that he was not a soldier said he wore the uniform to a bar when he was arrested.

Salami however said one of the kidnap victims identified Bello as one of his abductors.
