The suspect, as per Hundeyin, had allegedly been involved in numerous traffic robberies in areas such as Iganmu and under the Ijora Bridge, earning notoriety among victims for his dreadlocks and perceived lethality.

He added, “Operatives swiftly responded to the scene from the Ijora Badia Division and succeeded in apprehending the suspect as he emerged from his criminal hideout. While his accomplices managed to flee, the suspect was detained at the station, where he confessed to his involvement in the crimes. Investigations are ongoing.”
