The Police in Lagos said they had arrested a member of a two-man robbery gang, which allegedly robbed an 81-year-old woman of about N7m and other valuables.

Police spokesperson in the state, Dolapo Badmos, a Superintendent of Police, who confirmed this to newsmen on Sunday in Lagos, said that the suspect was arrested by operatives of Rapid Response Squad.

Badmos said the suspect had told the police that the leader of the gang, now at large, was an herbalist.

She said that the suspect attacked the old woman at her Oduduwa Street, Itire, Lagos, home at about 8 p.m. and dispossessed her of 10,000 dollars (about N4.7 million), 5,000 pounds sterling (about N1.8 million) and N100,000.

Badmos said, “Other valuables collected from the woman, according to Badmos, were a box containing assorted jewelries.

“The suspect confessed that he was only invited into the robbery by the herbalist, simply identified as Demola.

“He claimed he promised to give him 50 per cent from the loot.

“The ringleader was treating one of the woman’s daughters (name withheld) who had sore on her right foot.

“Whenever the lady visited him for treatment, he was always stylishly collecting information about her mother from her.

“Unknown to the lady, he had collected all necessary descriptions and information needed to rob the woman.”

She said that the command was making effort to arrest the gang leader, vowing that the police “would leave no stone unturned to nip crimes in the bud in the state’’.

“The suspect has been transferred to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad for further investigation,’’ she added.
