Operatives of the Ogun State Police Command say they have arrested two suspects, Francis Obeya (26) and Emmanuel Abah (21) while allegedly fleeing with their employer’s motorcycle and goods on Christmas Day.
The suspects were said to be working with a company and one of them is a dispatch rider.
The dispatch rider was reported to be on an errand to drop goods for a customer at Berger-Ojodu area, when himself and the accomplice decided to flee and they arrested at J4 along Sagamu-Ore Road.
The Ogun State police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the suspects were arrested following a distress call received at the command’s control room from a Lagos- based company that a dispatch rider with the company was sent to deliver a certain goods to a client had fled with the goods and the motorcycle.
He said information further revealed that the said rider was heading towards Sagamu-Ore road.

He said, “At about 12.30 am, policemen attached to Ogbere Division sighted the motorcycle at J4 area with two occupants and they were promptly arrested.
“The two suspects are currently being detained at the station while the motorcycle had been recovered.”
