A member of a robbery gang terrorising Maroko town has been arrested by the police.
The police in the state are also on the trail of other members of the gang, following a preliminary investigation that showed that some of their members reside around Bariga.
The arrested suspect, Daniel Sunday, a resident of Odun Street, Bariga, had, a few days ago, reportedly pounced on an unnamed lady, who was rescued by the police.
A police source at Maroko divisional police station told Lagos Metro that “some robbers use to operate along the Elegushi road and the suspect is one of them.”
The police source added that “on the particular day, he had targeted a female victim and had pounced on her before we rescued her.”
The image maker in charge of the state police command, Dolapo Badmos, while confirming the arrest, said “the area DPO, Abdulmajeed Isa, upon receiving a distressed call, moved and apprehended the suspect and recovered a locally-made single barrel pistol from him.”
Badmos also said the sum of N14,600 and the victim’s handbag were also recovered from the suspect, who, according to her, had confessed to the crime.
