Man arrested for robbery attempt on mother’s friend*

A 35 years old man, Michael (surname withheld), was reportedly arrested by the Oluyole Security Surveillance Team (OSST) and vigilance group in Ibadan, Oyo State, after he invaded the residence of Mrs Foluke (surname withheld), his mother’s friend, at Papa Eleye Community in the Olomi area and attempted to rob her.

According to the report, the alarm raised by the woman alerted neighbours who pursued and apprehended the suspect.

The OSST commandant, Olusegun Idowu, when confirming arrest of the suspect, disclosed that members of his team were alerted to the robbery attempt and promptly left for the area to apprehend the suspect.

Among the exhibits found with Michael included a sharp large knife, mask and gloves.

The report gathered revealed that the 62-year-old woman, who almost turned victim, narrated her experience thus: “Michael is my friend’s son. It had been quite some time I saw him, and his parents had already disowned him. He came from Lagos State to Ibadan during Yuletide in 2023. Days before he came to my house, he greeted when he saw me”.

“Three days after, I saw him again. He asked about my children and I told him they were not around. After exchanging pleasantries with me, he waved me goodbye”.
