Their method of operation is to first scare victims away with the dog and then take advantage of the confusion to rob.   

They wanted to rob a woman, but this time, Bullet for strange reasons refused to heed their order to attack the woman. Instead it stood and kept barking.

Officials of the police around the market were alerted and they headed for the scene. On getting there, the dog was still attempting to scare the woman and the police arrested the dog and its owners who were attempting to escape.

Other persons suspected to be members of different cult groups and armed robbery gangs were also paraded by the police after the press briefing.

The police commissioner said they would be charged after further investigations.
