Police Officer's Son and Two Others Arrested for Armed Robbery



Three teenage armed robbers were yesterday arrested after robbing a man of his Toyota Venza number plate APP 7080 W at Umuopu Agu in Enugu Ezike, Igboeze North Local Government Area of Enugu State. The leader of the gang, Arinze Eya, said that he brought the other two suspects to help him rob the vehicle from the owner so that he could use the proceeds to travel to Indonesia.
Eya, who said that his father was a police officer, said that he asked the vehicle owner to support him with money so that he could travel about two years ago but stressed that the victim failed to do so. According to him, one of the suspects was his first cousin while the third, who had tattoos of arobaga on his back was not related to him.
Police sources said that the suspects robbed the vehicle from their victim and were traveling to a place where a buyer had promised to pay N2.5 million when the vehicle was involved in an accident at Alor-Agu, before they were arrested with the aid of the local vigilante group in Enugu-Ezike.
