Two more key members of the gang behind the recent Offa Kwara State multiple bank robberies and murders have been captured by the police.

A police statement issued on Tuesday in the state capital Ilorin said: “Sequel to the publication of the pictures of the Offa Bank robbers in the media, we have been getting several credible leads from good citizens of our country. As a result, IRT teams deployed by IGP Ibrahim Idris to Kwara, Ondo, Osun, Oyo and Ekiti states were able to arrest two more gang-leaders of the deadly bank robbery whose pictures were circulated by the media.”

The statement identified one of the arrested “confessed gang-leaders” as “Kunle Ogunleye a.k.a Arrow, 35 years native of Kwara State, who was arrested yesterday in Oro town in Kwara State.”

It identified the other as “Michael Adikwu, a native of Apa LGA Benue State and a dismissed police CPL who was arrested by the police in 2012 and charged to Court in Kwara State for compromising by releasing some wanted armed robbers. He had spent three years in prison and subsequently found his way out in 2015 and became a notorious armed robber. He was arrested again by IRT Operatives in Kwara State two weeks ago.”

The statement said that “all suspects arrested among others have confessed to the Offa bank armed robberies and murders,” adding: “They are assisting the IRT teams in arresting more of the bank robbers as the police continue the investigation.”
