Police Nab Uber Robbery Syndicate in Lagos

The Lagos State Police Command has arrested two suspected armed robbers who attacked one Uber driver named Utibe, m, on 20th September 2020, at 11.30pm, and snatched his Toyota Corola car with Reg. No LND 448 GH at Abijo GRA, Ibeju Lekki.

On the receipt of the distress call, the Area Commander Area J, Ajah, despatched a team to the scene and traced the snatched car to Mayfair Garden, Ibeju Lekki, where the suspects were arrested, driver rescued and the car recovered. The Police also recovered one axe, stained with blood, and one knife from the suspects.

The driver, who was seriously injured, is receiving treatment at a hospital within Lagos State and recuperating.

The Commissioner of Police Lagos State, CH Hakeem Odumosu, has ordered for discreet investigation into the case, while he warned those who are planning to engage in criminal acts or have been involved in one crime or the other to desist and flee Lagos State , or else, they meet their waterloo in no time.

In another development, the attention of the Lagos State Police Command has been drawn to a trending Instagram video of an Inspector of Police from Igando Divison of Lagos State endervouring to effect the arrest a man, and hereby wishes to make some clarifications on the issue.

That the Inspector captured in the video is Stephen Inumanu, Inspector of Police, attached to Igando Police Station, Lagos State, was deployed on a routine Stop and Search duty on 18th of September, 2020 at about 13:15hours, with two other team members, at Isuti Road in Egan area, Lagos State.

While on duty, the team sighted two nervous young men who took to their heels for the unexpected presence of police men but the team gave them a fierce chase and one Stephen Ade “m” 28 year old, threw a micro wallet to his partner, who escaped in another direction; then, two of the policemen chased the escapee but to no avail.

In the spirit of cooperation, Inspector Stephen Inumama, was assisted by two spirited civilians(members of the public) who witnessed the episode, chased and arrested the said Stephen Ade “m”, who practically refused arrest as captured in the video, but with the aid of the members of the public, he was subdued within the use of minimum force, without assault whatsoever, from the arm bearing Inspector.

The Command wishes to state categorically that the trending video was borne out of mischief to discredit the collective image of the police by folks who are uncomfortable with police presence or visibility of officers on the road or around them, regardless of how courteous.

Without mincing words, the video was carefully edited by the sender to remove barrage of insults the suspect hauled on the police officer in the presence of civilians, as customary of mischief makers.

The Command therefore urges the general public to regard the video as baseless and calculated attempt to malign the efforts of the Nigeria Police in maintaining law and order in the society; while the Command reiterates its commitment to discharging its duties with diligence, human feelings and respect for the rule of law and human rights.
