OAU arrests 9 suspected criminals

23 August 2013, 14:18

Osun - Nine persons suspected to be criminals  have been arrested at the new 'bukateria' axis of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Osun.

The report  of the arrest was contained in the university's news  bulletin issued on Friday.

The  publication stated that the suspects were caught during the security surveillance and patrol exercise at  the university estate.

It stated that the suspects’ fierce look, charms, tattoos and scars of various degrees on their bodies gave them out as suspicious and dangerous.

The publication said  those arrested might be criminals or cultists who presumably came to assess the campus before launching an attack.

It said preliminary investigation revealed that the suspects came into the campus in two cars- a Toyota Camry with registration number NB 661 AAA and  a Nissan Micra marked 92- D48496.

“Consequently, to update the security data-base, the suspects were appropriately profiled before they were handed over to the police for further investigation and possible prosecution,’’ it stated.

The publication stressed the need for  security consciousness on the part of  members of the university community .

It urged them to collectively rise up to tackle the emerging security challenges facing the institution.
