READ THIS! Suspected Traffic Robbers Reveal How They Operate
The police expect that motorists plying Lekki-Epe expressway will now heave a sigh of relief.
This is because two men who allegedly specialize in robbing commuters, Akpan Samuel and Ani Chukwuma, were remanded in Ikoyi prison after their arraignment at Igbosere Magistrate-Court-10 on Thursday, November 1st, 2018.
Described as notorious armed robbers, the suspects were nabbed on Monday October 29, 2018, by operatives of the Command led by the Divisional Police Officer, Maroko Division, CSP Isah Abdulmajid.
They both revealed during interrogation that their modus operandi was to mount the pedestrian bridge, Maruwa bus stop, Lekki/Epe expressway. At that vantage position, they were able to monitor the traffic and carefully select their target.
They thereafter, swoop on the target and rob them of their valuables by means of a big hammer used in smashing side glasses and windscreens of drivers who refused to roll down their glasses when commanded to do so.
The hammer and an improvised pistol that appears like a perfect prototype of a berretta pistol, were recovered from them.
Their activities were a source of concern to the Command thus the CP Lagos directed the DPO to mobilise all assets at his disposal to ensure the arrest and prosecution of the hoodlums.
The CP, as usual, vowed that the activities of this set of criminals will soon be a thing of past as the Command has increased surveillance along all routes with heavy traffic.
