The Nigeria police have arrested notorious robbers terrorizing Nigerians along the Badagry/Seme border of Lagos Lagos.
The robbers, led by a 22-year-old boy met their waterloo few months after attacking one Mr. Garba Usman and Akubo Ibrahim, who are both officers of the Nigerian customs service where they dispossessed them of their 2006 Toyota Corolla and Lexus 350 SUV and other valuables.
Following IGP Ibrahim K Idris’ directives, massive manhunt was launched by Intelligence Response Team led by ACP Abba Kyari.
Kyari in a statement sent to DAILY POST said the gunmen upon arrest confessed attacking and robbing the customs officers sometime in February.
He gave the names of the suspects as, Tunji Adesanya, a native of Odojomo in Ondo State, who was just released from Agodi prison Ibadan, Oyo state, Rasaq Lawal, 22 the gang leader, a native of Lalate in Oyo state who was also just released from Agodi prison Ibadan shortly before the robbery.
He said, “The suspects confessed to the armed robbery attacks on Mr Garba Babayaro and Akubo Idris respectively and several armed robbery attacks in Badagry/Seme areas of Lagos.
One Ak47 rifle, one locally made single barrel pistol, one locally made double barrel pistol, four Ak47 rifle magazines with 84 live ammunitions and one Beretta pistol magazine with 10 rounds of live 9mm ammunitions were recovered from the gang,” Kyari said.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
