Police nabs 12 suspected traffic robbers

The Lagos State Police Command has arrested 12 men, who allegedly rob motorists during gridlock.
They were arrested by the men of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) last Friday, following a tip-off from motorists, who ply the Mile 2 and Ijora route.

RRS Commander Olatunji Disu, an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), said: “The miscreants were fond of snatching mobile phones and dispossessing citizens of their valuables during gridlock along both metropolises. They attack victims by damaging their vehicles’ windscreens which makes them surrender under duress.
“When we got to Task force office in Alausa, four suspects who gave satisfactory description of themselves were released while the remaining eight were charged to court,” Disu said.
He recalled that the RRS operatives recently arrested a terrorist whose gang attacked motorists in the same route.
“When we arrested him some weeks ago, he confessed that he was not the only one in the act, he said they snatched bags and phones during traffic jam. This current arrest shows they are his syndicate”, he added.
He appealed to citizens to assist the Police with useful information, promised that informants’ identity won’t be revealed for fear of retaliation.
