Police Arrest Traffic Robbers, Recover Weapons


Two notorious traffic robbers terrorising commuters within Lekki/Epe axis of Lagos State have been apprehended by operatives of the Lagos State Police Command.

The suspects, Akpan Samuel and Ani Chukwuma, were nabbed during an operation in Lekki/Epe area.

It was learnt that the suspects’ modus operandi was to mount the pedestrian bridge at Maruwa Bus Stop, Lekki-Epe Expressway and from that vantage spot monitor the traffic and carefully select their targets.

It was gathered that they, thereafter, pounce on their target and rob them of their valuables by smashing the side windows and windscreens of cars with big hammers, when drivers refuse to wind down their glasses.

A hammer and a locally made pistol that appeared like a perfect prototype of a Berretta pistol were recovered from them.

The spokesperson Lagos State Police Command, CSP Chike Oti, who confirmed the arrest, said: “The suspects were nabbed on October 29 by operatives of the Command led by the Divisional Police Officer, Maroko Division, CSP Isah Abdulmajid.
