RRS Arrests 22 Teenagers For Robbery And Cultism – 22 teenagers have been arrested by the Rapid Response Squad for crimes related to robbery and cultism.
The suspects were paraded by RSS commander Tunde Disu, who arrested the suspects over their activities in Agege and its environs.
The first gang consisted of 8 members: Matthew, 18; Sakiru, 16; Ganiyu,13; Reliwan, 15; Ibrahim, 15; Babatunde, 15 and Tayo, 15.
“I was coming from work and decided to pass through Mulero to link the closest bus stop around 10 pm,” a victim named Aladegbo Abidemi said.
“My phone rang and I picked it. Few seconds into the call, I noticed some young boys swarming like bees towards me. I ran, but I fell. They rough handled me, threatened me with an axe and took my phone. They retreated and abandoned me inside the gutter. A couple of minutes later, I saw an RRS patrol vehicle. I reported the incident and showed them the direction they went. The officers went after them and arrested them. My phone was found on them.”
A second gang of teenagers were arrested after attempting to steal a phone at the Computer Village. They confessed to being members of the Eiye cult gang.
The arrest of the teenagers was confirmed by Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmus, who revealed that the parents of the children had been invited by the government.
