Ex-convict released from prison two months ago among seven traffic robbers arrested in Lagos

Officials of Lagos Rapid Response Squad (RRS) have arrested three traffic robbers at Ikeja City Mall just as National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Mile 2 park assisted the police in arresting four notorious traffic robbers in the area.

Four of the suspects, Segun Peters (22), Kabiru Odeh (25), Nurudeen Suraj (22) and Dennis Ikuvbogie (24) were arrested on Thursday, February 17, at Mile 2 while having a field day; other suspects, Anifowoshe Kolawole (20), Patrick Ameke (21) and John Britto (27) were picked around Ikeja City Mall based on complaints on their illicit activities around the area.

One of the suspects, Nurudeen Suraj was a week ago arrested and detained at Agboju Police Station. He explained that he was released from prison two months ago.

The Commander, Rapid Response Squad (RRS), CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi, had on a tip off on the activities of traffic robbers in Mile 2 on Wednesday afternoon deployed plain cloth police men to the area to monitor and arrest the suspects.

The NURTW members had hounded down the four suspects before the officers got there. The suspects were thereafter handed over to the police team for investigation and prosecution.

Those arrested in Ikeja were selectively picked up after a petition initiated by the management of Ikeja City Mall on reported incidences of traffic robbery in the area.

The suspects, who were placed under close monitoring before their arrest this afternoon, on most occasion pretend to be beggars and nose mask vendors. They used the ploy to rob motorists and pedestrians visiting the complex.

One of the suspects, Anifowsoshe Kolawole, who had been warned on many occasions by policemen pleaded for leniency.

The Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi commended the civilians who provided the intelligence to the police as well as those who assisted the police in arresting the suspects, stressing that, our communities would become safer if people co-operated with the police.
