Two social miscreants popularly known as ‘Agbero’ have been arrested by Operatives of Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of Lagos State Police Command for stuffing N1.548 million abandoned robbery loot into their private parts.
The suspects, Adegoke Adewale and Ganiyu Idowu, were arrested on Thursday evening when they were caught tucking into their private parts loots abandoned by fleeing robbers.
According to PM News, the suspects, among other miscreants were said to have pretended to be helping the police in chasing three armed robbers who snatched about N3 million from a yet to be identified bank customer in Oshodi.
The robbers after being chased by the police dropped their loot in a compound, which the suspects stole and stuffed into their private parts.
It was also gathered that the robbers, about three in number operated on a motorcycle in Oshodi. They were reported to have snatched a bag containing about N3 million from a bank customer.
Some of the RRS operatives, near the scene of the incident, had chased the robbers, leading to the arrest of one of them on Okada while two others with short pistols tried to escape on foot.
The suspects, as well as the recovered loot, have been transferred to Makinde Police Station in Oshodi.
Also recovered along with the loot were three cheque booklets of Diamond and Zenith Banks, several signed cheques and counter signed cheque leaves.
Reacting to the incident, Lagos State’s Police Public Relations Officer, Superintendent of Police, Dolapo Badmus, assured that the police will apprehend the fleeing robbers.
Meanwhile, the Lagos State Government says it is set to go to the capital market to float N60 billion bond for infrastructural development.
The Commissioner for Finance, Akinyemi Ashade, who stated this on Friday at the Annual General Meeting of Bond Series and Rating at the Civic Centre, Victoria Island, said this was the first tranche of the the N500 billion bond that the Lagos State House of Assembly approved for the Governor Akinwunmi Ambode-led administration a few months ago.
