A set of traffic robbers was arrested at the Toyota bus stop area of Oshodi in Lagos state with pistols and rounds of ammunition by the state’s Rapid Response Squad (RRS).
Their arrest was followed by a tip-off from commuters plying the route.
From preliminary investigations, it was confirmed that, the arrested persons were members of a particular cult group operating within the Lagos metropolis.
The statement issued by RRS listed the names of the arrested gang members, which are:
“Omuyibo Goddey (32), alias Aro Ghetto Boy; Destiny Nwanga (27), alias Aro Smiling God; Ebuka Igwe (23), alias Aro Do or Die.”
Omuyibo Goddey however, confessed shortly afterwards, that they were about to rob their second victim when the RRS patrol team arrived.
The RRS statement also stated that, “Nwanga repairs fuel pump at Ladipo Spare Part Market; Omuyibo works as a welder, while Igwe deals in illicit drugs;” but that they were picked up at their converging point at 7, Alhaji Monsuru Street, in the Ijegun area of Lagos.
Lagos state Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi has directed the RRS Commander, Olayinka Egbeyemi, to transfer the suspects and their exhibits to the CP’s Special Squad for further investigation, and for prosecution.
