RRS Arrests Three Traffic Robbers Moments After Robbery Operation


Three robbers operating around Ogun Long Bridge, Isheri, Ojodu - Berger and Agidingbi area of Ikeja have been arrested by operatives of the Lagos State Rapid Response Squad (RRS).

The suspects were arrested on Saturday moments after a major robbery operation.

Two android phones which they had robbed were retrieved from them.

The suspects - Issa Jidda (15), Alli Jumah (19) and Adamu Mohammed (22) were arrested at about 8:46 p.m. around Olowopopo Way, Ikeja after robbing two ladies in Agidingbi, Ikeja and Isheri.

According to one of the suspects, Issa Jidda, the gang had been operating in Ogun Long Bridge, Isheri, Unilag Estate, Gateway Estate, Ojodu – Berger, Fela Shrine and Agidingbi since May, 2019.

“We have been operating since last month. I was invited into the gang by Adamu. He is the leader of the gang. I have gone out on robberies with them seven times. Our targets are mobile phones, wallet and jewelry”, he stated.

“We also rob in traffic, especially Long Bridge. We avoid operating in Kara because we live there. Our colleagues might see us. We sell the phones and share the money.

"The motor cycle that we use is owned by Alli. The three of us operate on it using a knife and dagger as our arms”, the primary school dropout added.

The trio were arrested by RRS patrol team after it responded to a distress call that some robbers on bike were operating in Agidingbi.

The officers trailed the robbers to Olowopopo Way, where a motorist who got a hint that the suspects were being chased hit their okada to prevent them from escaping into the Lagos – Ibadan Expressway.

The owners of the two android phones snatched at Gateway Estate, Isheri and Agidingbi, identified the suspects.

Already, the suspects have been transferred to Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) for further investigation

Commenting on the development, the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command, Muazu Zubair urged Lagosians to continue to cooperate with the police in order to address some of the security challenges in the State.
