According to him, the suspects, Daniel Okereke, Henry Osagwe and Wisdom Atuba were arrested following an information received by the policemen attached to Mowe divisional headquarters at about 10 pm.

He said that the police received information that a group of men numbering about seven who were suspected to be armed robbers were sighted in  an hideout at Ajeonibode area of Mowe, where they were perfecting plans on when and how to attack their targeted victims. 

“Upon the information, the DPO, Mowe Division, CSP Saminu Akintunde, quickly mobilized his men and stormed the scene.
