April 15, 2016  – Beware Of Notorious Armed Robbery Gang Kidnapping Victims, Collecting ATM Cards & PIN Numbers At Gunpoint In Lagos

A new robbery gang specialising in kidnapping victims while snatching their ATM cards and PIN at gunpoint is now working 247 in Lagos State.

A victim simply identified as Iyke, said he was abducted at the bus stop while waiting for a commercial bus. He was bundled into a commercial bus by four men.

They made a beeline for Alpha Beach. At Alpha Beach, the four men dragged him into a building, where he met another group of men.

They searched Iyke and found N10,000 on him, which they took. They also took his ATM card. They forced him to disclose his Personal Identity Number (PIN). Two men left on a motorbike to the nearest ATM gallery to withdraw money from Iyke’s account, others stayed with him.

The suspect arrested however denied being a member of the notorious robbery gang.

Borokini Bolaji said he knows the gang using his master’s building to carry out their nefarious activities.

In his words;

“I’m just a caretaker of the building. I know the men behind this crime. I can take police to them. These men are indigenes of the Alpha Beach.

They are into 419(fraud). I have warned them to stop using the building for crime. The main leaders are Eba, Eku and Eja. They are always at Alpha Beach.”

“I fear them! They are cultists. They can kill and are always involved in land wars. They used to invite other gang members from Ikorodu.

I have complained to the owner of the building. He complained to the Baale, but nothing was done. Many of these men are relatives of the Baale. I’ll take police to them. I can’t vomit what I didn’t eat.”

    When operation sweep started in this very lagos, the crime rapidly reduced, but when RRS(rapid rubbish shit) start, they are more concern on bribe collector service.

    The Police is culpable in this case. Since they know the culprits and has refused to arrest them till date.

    My problem with the Authority now is, even if these Despiradoes are apprehended now, there is nothing tangible that will be done to them much other than detaining them for a while, collect some money from them and set them free again to go re-strategise.

    The FG need to take a serious measure about this menace. To me the FG is too lenient to these people.
    I think they should #BringBackTheFiringSquad#

    My strolling continues…
