A prisoner who escaped from Edo State during the #EndSARS protest, Obehi Ogbeh, has been arrested by men of the Ogun State Police Command in Ifo Local Government Area of the state.
Ogbeh who escaped from the white house prison yard in the state last year was apprehended on Tuesday in the state while wandering about.
The development was disclosed by the spokesperson of the command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, on Wednesday.
Oyeyemi while speaking on the development noted that the prisoner was arrested following information received by policemen at Agbado divisional headquarters that a middle-aged man was seen around Angulis area of Agbado with a suspicious look and conduct.
According to the spokesman, the information saw the DPO Agbado division, CSP Kehinde Kuranga, direct his detectives to the area where the man was apprehended.
He further stated that the suspect was properly interrogated and confessed to the detectives that he was an inmate of white house prison in Edo State and that he was set free by hoodlums who attacked the prison yard during the #EndSARS protest.
The PPRO said, “He further confessed that he relocated to the Agbado area in order to avoid being re-arrested.”
Oyeyemi, however, said, the Commissioner of Police, CP Edward Ajogun, has directed that the suspect be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further profiling.
