Thieves Nabbed Whilst Sharing Loot

Six suspected burglars have been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command in the Ikoyi area of the state.
Our correspondent learnt that the suspects were sharing their loot when they were arrested by police operatives.

PUNCH Metro gathered that the men, identified as Friday Eze, Stanley Ejiofor, Femi Miracle, Raphael Ijoha, Emmanuel Omojuwa and Daniel Thomas, were arrested by men of the Ikoyi Police Division on Tuesday, August 9.

The police said the gang, which was notorious for breaking into houses and stealing valuables, had other members who escaped arrest.
Our correspondent learnt that around 10pm, the gang members allegedly burgled some houses on Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, and drove away in a car to a junction in the area to share the loot.

A source said operatives, who were on patrol, observed the suspects sharing the stolen items in the car and arrested them.
He said, “They are notorious in the Ikoyi area for burglary. They don’t rob to avoid raising suspicion. They only wait for their target houses to be deserted before they strike.

“We were on a ‘stop-and-search’ in the area when we observed them sharing some goods inside a car around 10pm. When we arrested them and searched the car, we found four laptops, three purses, 13 mobile phones and four iPads. They confessed that they were returning from an operation. The six of them have been transferred to the Special Anti-Robery Squad, Ikeja.”
Speaking with PUNCH Metro, Eze, a father of two, said he went into burglary to make ends meet.

He said, “It was frustration that drove me into burglary. The situation was very critical for me and my family. I have a wife and two kids to cater to. I am not the gang leader. A friend brought all these men for the operation. We stole several laptops. I took two laptops and two iPads. I have gone for only two operations.

“I was formerly living in Lekki with my family. But when things became difficult, my in-laws took my wife and children to Ikorodu. I am the firstborn of my parents. My sisters have been sent out of school and I have to fund their studies.”
Another suspect, Thomas, said, “Friday (Eze) introduced me to the gang. We are friends. I do not rob; I only burgle houses. It was hard times that led me to this.”

The state Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, said the suspects would be charged to court at the end of investigation.
“Members of the public should continue to cooperate with the police in tackling crimes in Lagos State. The suspects will be arraigned in court at the end of investigation,” he said.

  14. It saddens my heart to see people bash some citizens for stealing petty items and wanting them to spend the rest of their lives in jail like so many people would preferred (Ain't in support of stealing though) there are other punishments like doing some certain JAIL TERM, they acted out of frustration and devastation, But when we see our leaders who looted public funds in which causes most of all these frustration,depression,death,broken home, amongst others,we'd rather be biased about it and praise them instead....So barbaric SMH
    This country is doomed. I pray God come to our rescue and we as people should take necessary actions where necessary.
