Operatives of the Edo State Police Command has arested a suspected notorious robber, who specializes in trailing and robbing bank customers.  The suspect, John Ayenu, 42, was arrested at the scene of the crime in Uromi, Esan North-East Local Government Area of the State.  Ayenu is said to belong to a three-man gang terrorizing Irrua, Uromi, Ubiaja and other communities in Edo Central.  It was gathered that the suspect and two others now at large, always stationed themselves in the premises of banks, with one of them stationed inside the banking hall, pretending to be a genuine customer carrying out transaction. Nemesis however caught up with the suspect, when they met their match in a serving policeman in mufti, who withdrew a large sum of money.  Upon coming out of the banking hall, the victim put the money under the seat of his car and drove off, unaware that he was being trailed. Ayenu and his other gang members followed their victim from the bank to Uromi-Irrua Road, where they intercepted and attacked him. The victim, however, resisted them, raised an alarm, which attracted attention of residents and members of vigilante in the area, who gave them a hot chase. Ayenu was arrested at the scene while his gang members escaped on their motorcycle. The suspect confessed to the crime, adding that they came all the way from Imo State to carry out robbery operations in Edo. “I am from Imo State. We came to Edo to monitor people withdrawing money from the bank. We usually break into the car to collect the money and run away. I could not run far because l fell when they were pursuing me as my two other members escaped with the Motorcycle we used. I have a wife and two children in Imo, and l stay in the hotel anytime l come to Edo state. I never knew the man is a policeman. He refused to give us the money, and he started fighting us and shouting for people to come,” he said.  The police are expected to arraign the suspect in court soon for armed robbery.  The post Police arrest member of notorious robbery gang that specializes in robbing bank customers in Edo appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
