The entire Ejigbo community in Lagos State was thrown into a joyous mood during the weekend after an alleged notorious armed robbery suspect was arrested.
The robbery suspect, who is also the leader of the cult group, Eiye confraternity, identified as Segun Kazeem, aka ‘No Case’, was said to have been nabbed by heavily armed police detectives attached to Ejigbo division under ‘Area D’ Command, Mushin following a tip-off.
According to Nigerian Guardian, the arrest was personally led by the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), CSP Olabisi Okuwobi.
Further findings revealed that before the suspect’s arrest, one Femi Kazeem was arrested after a botched attempt to rob a woman of her belongings using a stick fashioned like a gun.
Detectives said it was the confession of Femi that led to No Case’s arrest at a secondary school while trying to snatch Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC) machines.
A source at the Ejigbo Division said the moment after Segun Kazeem was picked up and a search warrant conducted at his Lafenwa Street residence, the office of the DPO was inundated with several calls requesting for his unconditional release.
Thereafter, a staunch member of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) was said to have stormed the division and demanded that he be released to him on bail.
But this request was turned down by the DPO, who also ordered that the OPC member is detained with a view to shedding more lights on the activities of Kazeem.
It was gathered that even when ‘No Case’ was arrested, he boasted before the police officers that they were courting a failing war that might even backfire, saying he was invincible and would soon regain his freedom.
It was also learned that the state Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, had placed the suspect – who was the leader of some notorious robbers, who specialize in robbing innocent people of their hard earned money and property – on a wanted list.
