The Lagos State Police Command has confirmed the arrest of suspects involved in the killing of one, Modupe Catherine, who was murdered on January 1, 2019.
The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, while parading the suspects yesterday at the Command’s headquarters in Ikeja, stated that the suspects were arrested after intensive police investigations.
He was quoted as saying: “On January 1, 2019, at about 0040hrs, some dare devil armed robbers invaded the home of one Mr. Akin and held the man and his wife, Modupe Catherine, now late, hostage at gun point.
“At this time, their children were in the church for the cross-over service. The deceased stood between the robbers and her husband and started pleading with them not to kill him. Unfortunately for the woman, one of the robbers pulled the trigger firing the deceased on her chest. They made away with their phones, laptops and cash sum of N2,200.
“Based on the sad event, operatives of the State Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) visited the scene and gathered items of evidential importance which were analysed leading to the arrest of one of the robbers. During interrogation, he gave his name as Isah Shobayo and confessed committing the crime. He later led detectives to arrest one Ogundimu Olalekan who served as their armourer.”
The police commissioner stated that the suspects will be charged to court soon.
