The Ogun State So-Safe Corps, an arm of Ogun State Government saddled with the responsibility to ensure security and safety of the good citizens of the State on Friday, 9th. September, 2022, at about 1400hrs rescued Mr Bamidele Mujeeb, an okada rider, who fell victim of armed robbery.

This was made possible following a statement issued from the office of the State Commander of the So-Safe, Commander (Dr) Soji Ganzallo through the Director of Information and Public  Relations of the Corps, Assistant Commander Moruf Yusuf, said that during the decoration of the new Ipokia Area Commander, ACC Yusuf Aliu, few weeks back, the Divisions under the Area Command were put on their toes to curb series of crime emanating from some okada riders and to put a stop to miscreants attacking okada riders.

According to Ganzallo, this faithful day, Mr. Ibrahim Oluwaseun, a 22-year-old resident of Olorogbo Compound, Asheko/Ibatefin Area of Ipokia Local Government, pretended to be a passenger and told the victim to take him from Aferiku Street, Idirko to Obalana Street, along Bebe road, leading to the Republic of Benin.

Ganzallo also said that the suspect, on robbery mission, later instructed the bike man to go through other narrow route that leads to the same destination.

The suspect then brought out a gun, later discovered to be a toy gun, and commanded that he surrender himself and the bike or lose his life.

At the scene, the So-Safe Patrol Team, Idiroko Division, led by CSC Abdulkareem Muhammad, witnessed the funny act, pounced on the suspect and got him arrested.

During preliminary investigation, the suspect confessed to the crime.

Meanwhile, the victim, the suspect and the exhibit - a motorcycle and a toy gun - have been handed over to the Nigeria Police, Idiroko Divisional Headquarters for further investigation and likely prosecution.
