The Ondo State police have claimed the arrest of fourteen suspected armed robbers and kidnappers. A police statement alleged that the suspects had been terrorizing residents of the state capital, Akure, as well as surrounding towns. The suspects, who were reportedly arrested after a tip-off from members of the public, were paraded at the police command’s headquarters on Igbatoro Road in Akure. In recent months, residents of the state had seen a spike in armed robbery attacks. The Ondo State Police Commissioner, Isaac Eke, revealed that the arrested suspects were part of a larger gang that had carried out incessant attacks all over the state.
