Stolen Phones Lead To Arrest Of Armed Robbers
Police described these men as armed robbers who thought they could cover their tracks, but the Police eventually beat them to their game.
On Monday, August 20, while one Kingsley Ochoma was attending to customers, four armed men forced their way into his warehouse, situated at Graceland Estate, Isheri-Oshun, Lagos.
They held them hostage and, in the process, carted away cartons of phones and accessories worth over nine Million Naira.
Based on a complaint received about the incident, the Lagos Commissioner of Police directed the Officer In-Charge of FSARS to commence investigation.
The detectives visited the warehouse and recovered some items left behind by the robbers. These items or specimen were examined, and the observations made were used to unravel the authors of the crime.
The chain of events which led to the arrest of the suspects, started when one Kareem Badmus and his mother, one Bola Badmus were arrested using two of the stolen phones.
During interrogation, they confessed that the phones were given to them by a relation named Yusuf Badmus and they led detectives to apprehend him.
Search was immediately conducted in the house of Yusuf Badmus and seven of the robbed phones were recovered.
Also recovered were two locally made cut-to-size double barrel guns with three live cartridges which he hid inside his operational vehicle, a Nissan Quest with Reg. No. BDG-339-CA.
The 36-year-old Yusuf Badmus later led detectives to arrest his gang members namely: Chimere Njenobi, Dominic Anawo and Abimbola Austine.
Investigation into the case is ongoing and the CP has vowed that the suspects will be charged to court.
