Edo Police Arrest Notorious Armed Robbers, Recover Snatched Vehicles
By Festus Alenkhe
Three notorious armed robbery suspects have been arrested by men of the Edo state police command.
Ismaila Isah was arrested in Ekpoma, Edo state, for being in possession of a mobile phone belonging to one Mr Osobhamisiole Kingsley, who was robbed of his Toyota Camry car.
The black colour car with Reg. No. Lagos AKD 214 GQ and other valuables were taken away at gunpoint in Ekpoma.
The suspect was immediately transferred to the office of the anti-Kidnapping and Cyber Crime Unit of the Edo state police command, where the case was first reported.
Standard Gazette learned that Isah fingered Yamaha Musa, 26-year-old, a resident of Idah town, Kogi State, a member of his gang that snatched a Toyota Camry.
Investigators recovered the car in Idah, Kogi State.
The black colour car has now been repainted with red colour.
Another member of the gang, Abdulqadiri Yahaya, who forged documents to sell the stolen car, had destroyed the vehicle tracker.
On Thursday at the Command premises, during the interrogation of the principal suspect Yahaya Musa, he sighted one of his gang members, Osatohamwen Amasohuomwan, whom they both carried out the robbery operations.
Luckily, Amosohuomwan was already in the police net for allegedly robbing a POS joint in Uromi, Edo State.
All the suspects arrested in connection with the case have confessed to the crime and other criminal operations within and outside Edo Central.
An investigation is still ongoing as suspects will be charged to court for prosecution.
The Edo State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Bello Kontongs, said all the suspects would be charged to court after the completion of the investigation.
