    Armed robbers caught as they tried to rob a Pastor in Abuja

    It is said to be the end of the road for nine deadly armed robbers who robbed a pastor in Abuja as detectives attached to the Inspector-General of Police Special Intelligence Response Team (IRT) have arrested and recovered stolen cars and operational weapons.

    The IRT, led by Assistant Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, which arrested the suspects, also recovered one Samsung Galaxy, one Infinix Hotnote, one Nokia phone, a gold wristwatch and Toyota Camry 2010 model belonging to Pastor Davies and six other stolen cars. The police also recovered house breaking and carjacking tools.
    According to some sources, a police source said:
    “The gang’s downfall started after a series of the complaints. Among the complainants was Pastor Davies. Many other victims attacked and robbed are residents of Mabushi area in the FCT. Clearly determined to stop the gang, the IGP, Ibrahim Idris, instructed IRT to track and apprehend the gang members.
    “The IRT operatives immediately launched a massive manhunt against the robbers. On May 22, one of the gang members, Lawal Peters (25), was arrested and a stolen Infinix Hotnote phone recovered from him. Peters confessed to armed robbery and led operatives to their hideout at Mabushi, FCT, where the first five suspected gang members were arrested.”
    Other gang members are Emmanuel Adole (26), who sold Pastor Davies’ stolen Camry for N400,000, Ojuma Onoja (24), who is in possession of the two phones and a gold wristwatch belonging to the pastor.
    Others are Danjuma Mohammed (30), Dickson Uche (21) and Ali Abdul (24). The suspects were said to have confessed to several armed robberies in Abuja.
    The confessions took operatives to Akwa Ibom and Cross Rivers states to pick up other suspects – Friday Emmanuel (28), Akaninyena Etukdo (32), Ikechukwu John (32) and Joe Effiong (28).
