ABEOKUTA - Operatives of Ogun state police command on Sunday arrested nine members of a notorious land grabbing syndicate for unleashing violence on people of Agbogun village in Ewekoro local government area of Ogun state.

The suspects Gbenga Odeniyi, Owolabi Shobayo, Michael Ramoni, Idowu Dauda, Femi Fadahunsi, Rasmus Hammed, Ade Lukman, Yakubu Akinwande and Sikiru Balogun were arrested following a distress call received at Obada Oko divisional headquarters from the Baale of the village that the land grabbers who came from different areas of Ifo, Atan, Gasline and Sango ota have invaded the village and violently attacking the people, extorting money from those working on their sites.

According to the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi in a press statement issued in Abeokuta on Sunday said, the DPO Obada Oko Division, CSP Benard Ediagbonya mobilized his patrol team to the scene where they met the suspects attacking one Mrs. Oniyide Folashade and one Mrs. Agbogun who were developing their sites.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Edward Awolowo Ajogun has ordered a massive manhunt for the rest of the hoodlums. 

He also warned land grabbers to stay clear of the state as the command under his watch will not tolerate any form of violence on the good people of the state from anyone or group no matter how highly placed such persons might be.
