Police arrest Suspected “One-Chance” Robbers on Third Mainland Bridge



Police arrest "One-Chance" Robbers on Third Mainland Bridge | BellaNaijaIt’s probably the worst nightmare of every commuter in Lagos – coming face-to-face with a one-chance robber.

Thankfully, there are 3 less to worry about as the Lagos Police Rapid response Squad has announced the arrest of suspected one-chance robbers on the Third Mainland Bridge.

Four robbers had actually been discovered, the squad shared on their Facebook, but one dove into the lagoon while being chased by the police.

The leader of the gang who identified himself as John Akinyemi said:

There were four of us. I was in charge of calling the team to work. It was our first trip for the day. We took four passengers in Estate Bus Stop in Alapere. They were going to Oshodi. We dispossessed them and dropped them off before Iyana-Oworo one after the other.

We took their phones and money. We have been doing this for more than three months. We sell the mobile phones and jewelry, and we share the money.

      Yes, it looks as if he has been “interrogated” NPF-style…

    These three guys (Nigerians) must be assumed innocent until proven guilty by the court in Nigeria. We shouldn’t take the words of our lying and criminal Policemen and Women for it. I encouraged the Nigeria Police to let them have their day in court, Just like any other defendants to defend themselves. A word is enough for the wise. I’ m just saying.

      Your comment is a joke. I lost a friend to these one chance robbers some years back – he was shot dead. I pray you don’t ever lose any one you know to this type of situation. This comment is insensitive to the victims of one chance robbers.

      GANNY, they are still presumed innocent under the law and by the courts despite whatever they may have “confessed” to the press, because not a single word of that is admissible as evidence in a law court. Accordingly, the state still have to prove their guilt beyond a reasonable law in a court of law, regardless of this public parade.
