The state Police PRO, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the suspects:  Umar Haruna, Abbah Yahaya,  Muritala Umar, Wale Fadeyi and Segun Olofinmade were arrested following a tip-off.

According to the Oyeyemi, a group of robbers numbering about 10 and armed with cutlasses had forcefully entered Balita Company and packed motor engines.

“Upon the distress call, the DPO, Sango division, SP Saleh Dahiru, mobilised his men and moved into the area.
