Two brothers, said to be suspected armed robbers, who allegedly used motorcycles to terrorise residents of Isolo and neighbouring communities have been arrested by the police.
The suspects, identified as Sunday and Johnson, were, on Wednesday, arrested by policemen from Isolo Divisional police station.
The two brothers were allegedly on their way for an operation when policemen intercepted them around Chemist Bus Stop, Isolo.
The image maker in charge of the state police command, Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the arrest of the suspects to Lagos Metro.
Badmos also said “one locally-made pistol and two cartridges were recovered from the suspects.”
A police source at Isolo police station told Lagos Metro that “our men were on patrol when they stopped their operational motorcycle around Chemist Bus-Stop.” The police source added that “they looked suspicious and our men insisted on searching them and when they finally did, they recovered a gun and two cartridges with them.”
Badmos said the arrested suspects could not give their address, adding that the case would be transferred to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the state police command for further investigations.
