Three suspected armed robbers were last Friday arrested by operatives of the FCT Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) for allegedly robbing one Oji Aso Ikwo of his vehicle, N350,000 and other valuables.
A witness said they armed themselves with guns and dangerous weapons, and trailed the victim at 8:30pm from Wuse Zone 6 Abuja to Masaka in Nasarawa State, where they forcefully collected his Toyota Corolla car that contained an international passport, digital camera, documents, Samsung handset with MTN and Etisalat SIM cards, N350, 000 cash and other valuables.
He said the SARS team swung into action after receiving the report and arrested Segun Adigun, Solomon Mombie and Peter Iofa.
SARS Commandant, Chief Superintendent Ben Igweh, said based on a confessional statement by one Peter Iofa, a team went to Yenagoa in Bayelsa State and arrested Dennis Musa as well as recovered a Nissan Murano Jeep, Honda Pilot Jeep and Honda Baby Boy.
He said a Toyota Corolla car belonging to Orji Aso Ikwo was also recovered by the team, adding that some of the vehicles have been released to their owners after proper identification.
The police officer said that Segun Adigun, Solomon Mombie, Peter Iofa, Alex Godwin, Denis Musa, Oche, Satino and one Musa will soon be charged for armed robbery, while Emmanuel Danjuma, Tanimu Kachiro and Ayuba Kachiro are held for unlawful possession of firearms and ammunition, bought from one Alex Godwin for self protection.
