The Ogun State Police Command has arrested an armed robbery suspect, Adeolu Bankole, residing in Idagba Quarters Ayetoro for impersonating Nigeria Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) by using the Corps' uniform to perpetrate evils.

The suspect, according to a statement released by Ogun Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, had been using NSCDC uniform for robbery operations but luck ran out of him as he was arrested on February 5, 2021 following a complaint by some students of Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ayetoro campus who reported at Ayetoro area Command that they were robbed of their belonging at gunpoint by an armed robber, who broke into their apartment, dressed in NSCDC uniform and dispossessed them of their phones and laptops.

The statement revealed that the area Commander Ayetoro, ACP Anthony Haruna, upon the report detailed his detectives to go after the hoodlum. 

It said: "after hours of painstaking investigation, the detectives received information about the hideout of the suspect. On getting there, a bag containing six phones, one laptop, a pair of NSCDC uniform and a locally made pistol was found.

"Upon the discovery, the detectives mounted surveillance in the area and at about 5pm, the suspect sneaked into the uncompleted building which is the hideout and moved straight to where the bag was kept. He was quickly rounded up and brought to the station. Two other stolen phones and a wrist watch was also found on him.

"The complainants were sent for and they all identified him as the person who robbed them. Investigation further revealed that the suspect stole the pair of NSCDC uniform from a parked Toyota camry belonging to an officer of the Corps on December 2020 and thereafter set the car ablaze. The officer has also identified the uniform as his own.

"The Commissioner of Police, CP Edward A. Ajogun has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for discreet investigation and diligent prosecution," the statement concluded.
