Some godfathers are mounting pressure on the police to stall the case
Two suspects who specialise in producing fake vehicle plate numbers have been nabbed by the police in Ogun State.
The gang members were arrested on Wednesday in Ilaro, Yewa South Local Government Area of the state.
The arrest was effected in the suspects’ hideout by police following a tip-off.
The suspects have reportedly confessed to the crime. A police source said the suspects revealed that the headquarters of the gang is based in Lagos.

However,sources said, arrangements were on-going to transfer the suspects from Ilaro to the Eleweran Police Headquarters in Abeokuta, the state capital.
When contacted, the Ogun State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, said he was still awaiting details of the arrest, as he was yet to be briefed.
