There was a slight drama at Amuloko area, a suburb of Ibadan, at the weekend when some policemen stormed a wedding engagement and arrested a man suspected to be a member of an armed robbery gang. He was picked up during his wedding engagement.
The suspect, who is fondly known as Togo, was arrested alongside some members of his family and that of the bride for alleged involvement in armed robbery.
A source at the event informed journalists that the police stormed the event at Olaoluwa area of Amuloko, packed the wedding cakes and some of the items meant for the wedding.
“Immediately the policemen stormed the venue, they headed straight to where the groom was sitting and handcuffed him. They also picked some members of his family. While this was going on, people that have come from different location for the wedding flee in different directions,” the source said.
A police source who spoke on the condition of anonymity said “the groom and other members of his gang robbed at Olodo on Friday and two of them were arrested in the morning and later another one was arrested; he was the one that gave us the information about Togo’s wedding and the other one is now at large.”
