How robbers killed four policemen


A graphic account of how a gang of robbers stormed a bank on the outskirts of Lagos and killed four policemen have been told by the robbers themselves after they were arrested by the police.

A graphic account of how a gang of robbers stormed a bank on the outskirts of Lagos and killed four policemen have been told by the robbers themselves after they were arrested by the police.

Making the revelations, members of the deadly gang who allegedly killed four policemen in September during a bank operation, said they woke up that morning and headed for the Abule Egba branch of Unity Bank where they laid ambush for anti-robbery operatives attached to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), Ikeja.

Daily Sun gathered that on the day of the robbery, the bandits had loaded a tipper lorry with arms and other weapons making it appear as if the lorry was transporting goods. The suspects said they divided themselves into two groups before the operations started, with some of them assigned to break into the vault while others laid ambush for the cops.

The robbers said the other group opened fire on the policemen when one of them identified the car that was conveying the cops approaching their point. Unknown to the police, the robber who pointed out their car was a police informer, who even attended the funeral of the slain cops.
A policeman, who pleaded anonymity, said: “The robbers on the day of the incident took off from their hideout at Ijora Badia, from where all the arms and other weapons used for the operation were loaded into a lorry before proceeding to the bank at Abule Egba.

The police said the tipper lorry was allegedly driven by one Kareem Oladepo alias Atiku, adding: “One of the robbers identified as Felix Adenuga alias Ugo, a police informer, who was always frequenting our Raider One office, was among those who laid siege to the police and on sighting the car that conveyed the operatives, he quickly alerted his gang members who promptly opened fire on the four policemen.”
However, the Raider One team with full determination to fish out these deadly armed robbers, immediately swung into action and arrested one David Dike Kalu alias Square, who confessed his full participation in the crime and this led to the arrest of seven more suspects namely: Taiwo Egbayelo, Azeez Abanikondu, Benjamin Ayeni and Segun Emmanuel, among others.

Daily Sun further gathered that after looting the bank, the robbers bought choice cars and painted the town red. The second- in-command of the gang, Egbayelo was arrested alongside his mother, who was alleged to be aiding and abetting him. Egbayelo said: “It is true that that I was part of the gang. I bought an Audi 20 car from my share of the money. I don’t know how arms and ammunition we used were procured.

All I did was to follow them and access the vault which we opened by using gas cylinders.”
The Commissioner of Police, Emmanuel Adebayo said that the police was dedicated to ending the incident of bank robbery in Lagos State.
