The PPRO also said men of the command's Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) busted another one chance robbery syndicate that operated between AYA (Asokoro), Kubwa, Zuba, and Nyanya axis.

He said the syndicate also operated in a black Golf car loaded with bags of sachet water to avoid suspicion.

He gave the names of the suspects as Oryu Ugo, Terdoo Zugo and Monday Godwin, saying the suspects, who have been evading police arrest, ran out of luck and were arrested at their hideout in Uke, Nasarawa State.

According to him, a black Golf car with registration number EY 698 ABJ was recovered from the suspects.

He said all the suspects would be prosecuted upon conclusion of investigation.
