The police in Lagos have arrested two armed robbery suspects, who claimed to be dispatch riders and a man producing their locally-made gun for operations.
NAN gathered that the vehicle was stopped in front of a commercial bank on Anthony village road.
The source said that the driver, acting ignorantly to the instructions of the suspects, who were with gun, attempted to escaped but was forced to stop at gun point by the officers.
NAN gathered that all the occupants of the car were asked to come out for search, where the arm and ammunition were discovered under the seat of the car.
Contacted, the Lagos police spokesman, DSP Bala Elkana, confirmed the arrests, stressing that the case had been transferred to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad for further investigation.
“Policemen from Anthony Village Police Division, on routine patrol led by the DPO, SP Patricia Amadin, intercepted a wine coloured Toyota Corolla car with Registration Number: KSF 257 FQ, occupied by three suspicious and uneasy looking adult males.
“Upon searching the vehicle, a locally-made pistol with a single live cartridge was recovered under the car seat.
