A member of the six‑man armed robbery gang said to be terrorising Ajangbadi, Shibiri, a Lagos suburb and its environs, has been nabbed by security operatives.

The suspect was arrested following a tip‑off by residents, when the gang operated along Imude road, Shibiri.

Although five members of the gang escaped, four locally‑made shotguns and cartridges were recovered from the arrested suspect, simply identified as Kabiru.

The gang, according to Vanguard findings, began operation at 9 p.m., robbing residents and shop owners in the area, including one Alhaja Musura Haziz.

However, when the gang retired to share loot at an uncompleted building close to Kabiru’s mother’s house, a resident (names withheld) alerted Neighbourhood Watch members who were on routine patrol.

Kabiru was arrested while the others escaped. He was handed over to Policemen at Ilemba Hausa police station.

One of the victims simply called Alhaja said: “Two commercial motorcycles with two passengers each, stopped in front of my shop. One of them brought out a gun and said I should co‑operate or he would shoot my seven‑year‑old child. I got really scared because he was pointing the gun towards my child. The other three also had guns.

“I brought out my sales proceeds of N17,000 which they took, in addition to my gold necklace worth N35,000 and my mobile phone handset.

“While they were still operating, my friend who had a bar opposite, noticed the unusual movement, walked in and asked what the problem was.

“When she got close, one of the robbers threatened and ordered her out.”

Vanguard learnt that the suspect has been transferred from Ilemba Hausa police station to the Special Anti‑Robbery Squad, Ikeja. [Vanguard]
