“The RRS arrived at the scene promptly, arrested the suspects and commenced preliminary investigations.
“While investigation was ongoing, their leader, Falodun, came along with a government official, identified as Olalekan Edu, to solicit the release of the arrested suspects. They were both arrested too.
“RRS fingerprint records showed that Taiwo Falodun and Adedire Olaniyi were once arrested in 2020, for extorting a university professor, while posing as Local Government officials on the LASU-Igando Road,” it stated.
It noted that the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, had directed the Commander RRS, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi, to charge the suspects to court, at the conclusion of investigations.
