The operatives of Rapid Response Squad (RRS) on Christmas Eve, December 24, arrested four suspected traffic robbers and recovered three android phones and ATM cards while on patrol of MKO Abiola’s Garden, Ojota, Lagos.

 

The suspects identified as Wasiu Olawale (23) an ex-convict, who was released in May 2023; Adebayo Olatunbosun (20); Wale John (28) and Uche Ugwu (25), the gang leader, were arrested around 7:30 p.m. after one of the victims alerted RRS bike riders on patrol of the area.

 

A diligent trailing of the robbers by the police led to the arrest of three of them and the recovery of three Android phones and ATM cards.

 

The fourth suspect was arrested on Monday on the directives of Commander RRS, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi to the squad’s Decoy Team to ensure all those involved in the robbery are arrested and prosecuted without delay.

 

Five victims have been reported at RRS Headquarters where they have identified the suspects. The suspects have equally confessed to the crime and are assisting the squad to arrest the others.

 

Confirming the arrest, the spokesperson of the state police command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said the suspects are to be charged to court as soon as investigations are completed.
