Lagos police arraign two ‘one-chance operation


The Lagos State Police Command has arraigned two suspects, Jamiu Olalekan (31) and Oni Adeola (27), identified as ‘one-chance’ armed robbery suspects known for their criminal activities in Abule-Egba and its environs.

SP Benjamin Hundeyin, shared the development in a statement posted on his X account on Saturday.

Earlier, operatives of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority reported the arrest of three alleged ‘one-chance’ armed robbers with one escaping, on January 4 near Jubilee Bridge in the Abule-Egba area of Lagos.

The suspects, along with their operational vehicle, a ‘T4’ commercial bus with the number plate APP 406 YE, were apprehended at the U-turn area of Abule-Egba.

Preliminary investigations revealed their identity as notorious ‘one-chance’ armed robbers known for operating around Abule-Egba.

Some eyewitnesses pursued them after seeing them pushing out one of their victims from their vehicle.

The two suspects were subsequently handed over to the police at the Ile-Epo Division for further investigation.

Providing an update on Saturday, Hundeyin shared a photo of the suspects and wrote, “Following the conclusion of investigations, the suspects, Jamiu Olalekan aged 31 and Oni Adeola aged 27, have been arraigned, while their operational vehicle remains impounded.”
