Bank Robbery Suspects Confess That The Money Was Needed To Celebrate Christmas

Policemen attached to Ilasamaja division have arrested two suspected members of a robbery syndicate that specialised in attacking customers who had gone to withdraw money from banks at Sadiku/ Ilasamaja, along the Oshodi-Apapa expressway, Lagos.

Following several complaints of attacks, the Lagos State Police Command boss, Mr Edgal Imohimi, directed a 24 hours surveillance around the banks and others along the expressway.

It was gathered that immediately a male customer who had gone to withdraw N350,000 stepped out of one of the banks at about 2pm , Friday, the suspects: Boniface Ewerem(46) and Joseph,(42) ordered him to bring the withdrawn amount, pointing a gun at him.

One of them according to eye witnesses fired a shot into the air as he snatched the money from the customer and zoomed off in their operational motorbike. Luck however, ran against them as policemen from Ilasamaja chased and caught up with them. Angry members of the community requested that the suspects be handed over to them with an apparent intent to carry out jungle justice on them.

The suspects during interrogation, revealed that they came from Iba area of the state to operate. One of them, Joseph, said they intended to use their loot to celebrate Christmas with their families.

He said: This is my first time. I wanted to use the money I would have collected, to celebrate Christmas. We never had any intention to kill our victims”

The suspects as gathered, were immediately transferred to the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, as crowd throng the station. One brownie pistol and two life ammunition as gathered, we’re recovered from them, including the stolen money which has been returned to the owner.

*THIEVES!!!!...this is how they would have declared aprties and all with another persons hard earned money....thieves!!!


  1. Na by force? All in the name of big boys

    1. Stealing to celebrate Jesus Christ does that even make sense... thieving idiots.

  2. Thank God they caught them, heartless people.

  3. And another person would weep for Xmas. What if the 350k withdrawn is for the person's boss or it's meant for a job he is carrying out. That is how they will lock up the person during Xmas thinking he is lieing about the robbery attack.

  4. Enter your comment...hmmm everyday for the thief one day for the power savers them right
