INSIDEMAINLAND – Officials of the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Enforcement Agency(Task Force), have arrested a motorcyclist, Yusuf Lammeed, as he tried to rob a commuter at Ikeja Along in Lagos.
In a statement released on Friday, the Director of Press and Public Affairs of the agency, Gbadeyan Abdulraheem stated that Lammeed was arrested on Friday, but two other suspects were on the run.
He said, “The lady, who screamed for help when approached by the suspects, alerted officers on a patrol along that axis, which led to a hot pursuit where one of them fell from the bike and was apprehended.
“While confessing to the crime at the task force headquarters at Bolade Oshodi, the suspect revealed that he and his gang members, Tribunal and Abbey of Mushin, had been in the business for over six months. He disclosed that the ban on the operations of Okada in the state made the business a lot more difficult but they still carried out operations at intervals to steal phones and sell to their dealers in Mushin, popularly known as Segun Scatter, Steven Memory, Kalimantan, and Ejo.”
Abdulraheem said the suspect would face charges.
