The robbers, numbering about four, had on November 18, 2019, invaded Jedo Petrol Station located at Efugbo area of the Igbokoda.

They also wounded the owner of the gas station, one Yedo Blessing, and Manager of the facility, Mr Omotehinse Igbekele, before carting away huge amount of money from the place.

He disclosed that the police was able to recover parts of the money stolen from the station from the robbers, adding that two motorcycles were parts of the items found in possession of the hoodlums.
