Following the razing of Ogun State deputy speaker Taiwo Oluomo’s office and vehicles by hoodlums, the state Police Command has arrested 25 suspected persons.
On Sunday, hoodlums burnt down the office of Oluomo and the constituency office of Hon. Ibrahim Isiaka, the Ifo/Ewekoro Federal House of Representatives member.
Confirming the arrest to journalists, the State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, described the act as pure criminality.
“Some people mobilised themselves and attacked the office of the Deputy Speaker, burnt down the office and five vehicles in that area. The correlation between the incident that happened and the reaction of the people is what we cannot establish. There is no nexus between the two attacks,” Oyeyemi said.
“For now, we have arrested 25 suspects. The case of arson is what the people have committed, there is nothing that warrants the spontaneous action, those 25 suspects have been handed over to the State Criminal and Investigation Department.”
