Four arrested for robbery in Lekki


Four suspected armed robbers have been arrested in Lagos for allegedly invading Mayfair Garden, Awoyaya in Ibeju Lekki.

Rasheed Odetola, 25, John Zion, 23, Damilare Salami, 20, and Adeboye Dayo, 25, were arrested by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) over the weekend with a locally-made pistol, four unexpended cartridges and a stolen phone.

The suspects were arrested during a fight with some men.

They denied being armed robbers, insisting that they were land thugs.

One of the suspects, Rasheed Odetola said, “It is true that the gun was found with us.

We are land grabbers’ thugs.

We use the gun to protect ourselves against our opponents.

“Sincerely, I do not know what caused the clash.

I only saw three of them beating one of us and we cannot fold our arms and allow them to beat him.

“After we were separated by some elders in the community, one of the boys started shouting that we took his phone.

“After searching us, unfortunately, the Tecno phone was recovered from one of us.

We were later taken to Elemoro Police Station, Ajah.

We were searched at the station and a locally-made gun was found on us.”
