All the Area Commanders and Divisional Police Officers have also been put on red alert, while the Bomb Disposal Unit of the command has been directed to comb all the prayer grounds and recreation centres across the state. 

The command in a statement by its Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, noted that okada riders are in the habit of violently attacking any motorist involved in an accident with their member, and in most cases preventing accident victims from being taken to hospital for medical attention.

It says that intelligence at its disposal reveals that kidnappers position their operational vehicle by the road side, pretending to be out for commercial services, with about four members of the gang posing as passengers in the vehicle.

The spokesman of the Command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who revealed this in a statement on Thursday, said the sales boy was arrested following a painstaking investigation embarked upon by detectives from Ifo Divisional Police Headquarters who has been on the trail of the robbery gang since December 17, 2020 when the case was reported.
