The Police in Ogun State have arrested no fewer than 27 suspects for their involvement in the pandemonium that broke out in Sagamu on Monday morning.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed this on Monday, a few hours after the violence, which led to the destruction of two banks, broke out.

Oyeyemi in a terse statement said, “normalcy has been restored in greater parts of Sagamu now. CP Frank Mba is personally leading police teams and some military men to tackle the situation.

“About 27 suspects have been arrested.”

It was earlier reported that violence broke out on Monday morning when some irate youths in Sagamu, Ogun State, went on the rampage following their inability to withdraw cash.

With bonfires, the protesters barricaded the Sagamu-Benin expressway and others, preventing human and vehicular movements.
