Operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) have arrested three traffic robbery suspects with a beretta pistol and four rounds of ammunition at Toyota bus-stop near Oshodi, Lagos.
The arrest was made by a tip-off from good samaritans who alerted the officers on routine patrol along Ladipo and Oshodi.
Preliminary investigations revealed, are members of Aro–Baga cult group.
They include: Omuyibo Goddey (32), alias Aro Ghetto Boy; Destiny Nwanga (27), alias Aro Smiling God; and Ebuka Igwe (23), alias Aro Do or Die.
Goddey disclosed that they were about to rob their second victim when the RRS patrol team arrived on the scene.
The arrest led the RRS to their converging point at 7 Alhaji Monsuru Street, Ijegun, where two other suspects were arrested.
Investigations revealed that Nwanga repairs fuel pumps at Ladipo Spare Part Market; Omuyibo works as a welder while Igwe deals in illicit drugs.
However, the Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi, has directed the Commander, RRS, CSP Yinka Egbeyemi to transfer the three suspects and exhibits to the CP’s Special Squad for further investigation and prosecution.
