April 3rd, 2013 – 7 Armed Robbers Who Robbed Lagos MMIA Airport Arrested

In March, some armed robbers stormed Lagos International Airport in Ikeja.  The gang killed two police officers while the attack left several passengers injured.

The Lagos State Police Command today paraded seven suspected armed robbers said to have carried out the robbery attack on the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, MMIA, last month.

A gang of armed robbers attacked the airport on 13 March, 2013, shot two policemen dead and made away with millions of dollars stolen from the Bureau De Change in the airport.

The police recovered from the suspects five AK 47 rifles, four dynamites, 64 AK 47 Magazines, all fully loaded with 30 rounds totaling 1,920 live ammunitions, Toyota Siena Space Bus, with registration number BDG 918 AG, two locally made pistols, two masks and several charms.

The suspects paraded at the Lagos Police Command, Ikeja, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria are Ibikunle  Olanrewaju John, Atoba Adeniyi, Ibrahim Abdullahi, Kazeem Aderibigbe, Saheed Adekunle, Christian Joshua and Saheed Okunola.

Commissioner of Police, Umar Manko, who paraded the suspects, said the gang was the one who attacked the Murtala Muhammed International Airport last month and killed two policemen, saying that the robbers were not based in Lagos, as they were arrested in Osun and Oyo State.

“All the suspects confessed to the armed robbery at the MMIA and several other deadly robberies in Lagos, Ogun, Ondo and Kwara States, such as the Oro First Bank/Union Bank armed robbery in Kwara State in January 2013; First Bank /Wema Bank armed robbery in Ikirun in Osun State in December 2012 and the Bullion Van robbery attack at Odogbolu Junction, on Lagos-Ijebu Ode Expressway in January 2013.

“They also confess to the armed robbery attack at the MMIA in February 2012 where about N600 million was carted away. Furthermore, the armed robbers involved in the airport robbery of February 2012 where about N600 million was robbed and the last month MMIA robbery include Teslim Okunola now late, Kazeem Aderibigbe (the middle man that links the armed robbers with the informant), Ibrahim Abdullahi, Emmanuel Ehianeta, Christian Joshua, Saheed Adekunle, Fasasi Jamiu, Ifeanyi Douglas (still at large), Felix Sunday (still at large), among others,” he explained.

Manko said investigation was still ongoing with a view to arresting the fleeing suspects soonest.
