Police arrest runaway members of armed robbery gang who robbed and killed Oyo law maker

Men of the Oyo State Police Command have arrested one
Kola Arobiole, a runaway member of the armed robbery
gang, which robbed and gruesomely murdered an Oyo
Arobiole, 30, notoriously known as Judgment, was among
22 suspected criminals paraded by Commissioner of Police
in the state, Mr. Abiodun Odude, at Eleyele, Ibadan, on
Wednesday, November 22.
The suspect purportedly fired the bullet that killed Gideon
Aremu, who represented Oorelope state constituency in the
eight Oyo State House of Assembly, on July 1, 2016 at his
Alakia residence, Ibadan.
Recall that four members of the gang suspects were
arrested last year in connection with the murder. Read here .
"The notorious robber was arrested in his criminal
hideout at Aisegba area of Ekiti State, after
sneaking into the state and led another armed
robbery gang to snatch a motorcycle from its
owner at Egbeda area of the state,” said Odude.
The suspect told newsmen that he shot Gideon Aremu
because he gave them problem. According to him, when the
gang members wanted to rob him in front of his house, he
(Aremu) grabbed one of them, Toibu, the informant that
invited the gang members to Alakia for the operation.
“He held on to Toibu and was shouting ‘thief, thief,
thief’ because he knew him. Toibu also lived at
Alakia. But Toib is dead. When the man raised the
alarm, if we did not do anything, anything could
have happened to us there. But we did not know he
was a lawmaker. We only wanted to collect money
from him because we were hungry. It was around
some minutes to eight o’clock in the evening. It is
true that I shot him, but he did not have cash on
him, we only went away with his phone.” he said.
