The Lagos State Police Command has arrested three suspected armed robbers, who allegedly robbed a victim of his cash and valuables estimated at N4 million in 2023.

The Command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the arrest to newsmen on Sunday.

Hundeyin said the victim, whose name was not mentioned, went to Ikorodu Police Division on October 10, 2023, to report that he was robbed at the Igbolomu area of Ikorodu at gunpoint, by a gang of armed robbers.

According to him, the complainant reported that the suspects collected his gold chain, pendant, and hand chain, which was valued at N3.4 million.

The spokesperson said the suspects also robbed the complainant of his Samsung Galaxy S12 mobile phone, valued at N280,000, two scalers valued at N24,000, a power bank, and cash sum of $200 (about N300,000).

The image maker said the police tracked and arrested two of the suspected armed robbers, aged 28 and 38, at the Igbolomu area of Ikorodu in March.

“Based on their confessions, at about 1 a.m. on Monday, another suspect, 32, who claimed to be a photographer/director of production of a newspaper organisation was also arrested.

“He confessed to have participated in the robbery attack on the complainant and that they sold the gold chain at the rate of N2.2 million and he got N400,000 as his share.
