POLICE ARRESTS THREE SUSPECTS FOR ROBBERY IN BENIN
The Edo State Police command has arrested three suspects for robbery in Benin.
The three suspects include two men and one pregnant woman.
It was gathered that the syndicate's mode of operation involved the woman faking labour pains along busy roads, while the two men take advantage of any person who tries to render help to her.
Police Spokesperson in Edo State, Chidi Nwabuzor, who confirmed the incident to newsmen on Monday, October 12, identified the criminals as Jumoke Akanbieme, Osagiede Izevbokun and Godfrey Okonide.
He said the operation that led to their arrest took place on the Murtala Mohammed Way, where they robbed the owner of a Toyota car, who attempted to help the pregnant woman.
The Police Spokesperson revealed that Osagiede Izevbokun and Godfrey Okonide came out from their hiding place and forced the victim to drive to the Upper Sokponba Road, where they dispossessed him of the car.
Nwabuzor added that so many cars have been snatched by the syndicate in the same manner.
