While beefing journalists before parading the suspects, Osifeso said, “On 3rd January, 2023, at about 0130hrs, a notori­ous robbery syndicate invaded a community at Alakia area of Ibadan with guns, cutlass­es and some other dangerous weapons.

“The following exhibits, one English made Double Barrel Pistol, Eight Live Cartridges, one mortar and a piece of plank which were part of the weap­ons used for the armed robbery cum murder operation were re­covered from the suspect.
