He said, “I abandoned schooling after my primary school education. I am based in Enugu State. I was arrested in Lagos State. I was caught in Ladipo Market in the Mushin area. The owner of the pump-action rifle is our gang leader. His name is Ebuka Mbajide.
“We had gone to the Mushin area to loot some shops when the police arrested us. They did not switch on the headlight of their patrol vehicle, so we did not notice them.”
A police source told one of our correspondents that the police were looking for three fleeing members of the gang.
He said, “The robbery suspects were transferred to SARS from the Olosan division. Most of them were based in Enugu State and came to Lagos for the robbery operation. They were six in the gang, but three of them have been arrested, while three persons escaped.”
The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, who paraded the suspects, said investigation was ongoing into the matter.
