MMIA Robbery: 2 More Suspects Arrested By The Police


The Lagos State Police command, yesterday, said they have arrested two more suspects in connection with the March 13, 2013, robbery at Murtala Muhammed International Airport where two policemen were killed and several others injured.

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr Umar Manko, had earlier paraded seven members of the gang who were arrested with five AK47 rifles, magazines and dynamites.

Operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, according to reports traced the robbers to Kwara and Rivers States, where they arrested one Shina Aremu aka Chinaa in Kwara and Chimobi in Port Harcourt.

It was gathered that Chimobi is a dynamite explosive expert who is regularly hired by robbers that specialize in bank robbery in the South-West. Sources say Chimobi has participated in all the bank robberies in the region.

A source said Chimobi was fatally injured when he snatched a pistol from one of the SARS operatives who was trying to handcuff him, as they laid ambush three days before nabbing him.
