Operatives led by the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Igando, CSP Taiwo Kasumu, have arrested four notorious armed robbery suspects.
“The armed robbery gang terrorizes the Igando/Egan residential neighbourhood mostly at night time.
“They arrived the neighborhood on three motorcycles with intent to rob along Ikotun-Igando road but the attempt was foiled by the police,” Elkana said.
The Police PRO said that one Mr Oseni Waheed, 32, was arrested at the scene with one locally made pistol while the rest escaped.
“Waheed led detectives to Aribisala Street in Egan where three of his fleeing accomplices were arrested,” he said.
Elkana said that the suspects have been on the wanted list of the State Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba for series of robberies and murders.
He said that they had since been declared wanted for the murder of a Policeman under Amukoko Division during one of their robbery operations.
“Investigation is ongoing and the suspects will be charged to court,” the DSP said.
In a similar development, Elkana also said that detectives from Ilemba Hausa Division, arrested two suspects, one Mr Gidion Amuzie, 25, and Godspower Imafidion, 25, of Satellite Town, Lagos.
“The suspects specialised in snatching vehicles from the owners or stealing the vehicles from where they are parked.
“They confessed that they stole the vehicle at a car wash in Satellite Town. Investigation is ongoing and the suspects will be charged to court,” Elkana said.
