How a Night Guard led his gang to rob his community

A night guard, Sunday Uche, who was employed as a night guard at Iyana Iyesi community in the Ado Odo/Ota Local Government Area of the state  has been arrested for leading his gang to rob the residents he was employed to protect.

Other members of the gang were named by the police as Mohammed Aliu, Ojulari Sakiru, Akinniyi Ademola, and Odeh Benedict.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, said Uche, who is the leader of the gang, deceived the members of the community when the robbery operation was going on.

Adejobi explained that the residents affected by the robbery placed a distress call to Uche’s telephone line, adding that he responded, telling the victims that he was in charge and would soon round up the robbers.

The police spokesman said the suspects had been terrorising the residents of Itele,Ijagba,Iyana Iyesi and other places in the local government area.

Adejobi said they were, however, arrested by detectives attached to the Special Anti- Robbery Squad of the command, which acted on a tip-off.

Items recovered from the suspects, according to the PPRO, include three locally-made single-barrelled guns, a dummy gun, some live cartridges, assorted charms and 13 handsets.
