Emmanuel Anyanwu, 39, an ex-convict and Kennedy Ujagbor, 42, a drug addict, were arrested by the RRS officers of the Lagos State Police Command, at Cele Bus-stop, when a victim, Sammy Bolaji, from whom they had snatched a bag, the previous day, identified them at a liquor joint.
Bolaji was on his way to Ogun State
when he was stopped by the duo. He
said: “They asked me if I knew a
particular address and I told them that I was a stranger in that area. As I made to leave them, they grabbed my bag from behind and fled.
Sadly for me, in that bag were a sum
of N7,500, two mobile phones, cloths
and other personal effects. I had to
discontinue the journey because all I
had on me were gone. The following
day, my mum chose to drive me
through the same spot.
Luckily for me, I saw them sipping
alcohol early in the morning. I
alighted, not telling my mom what I
had seen, at least to confirm first. I
saw RRS’s patrol vehicle passing by
and I waved them down, they followed me to where they were sitting and arrested them.”…. after allowing them finish their drinks….
