Police operatives attached to the Ipakodo division of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested one Emmanuel Rolland, aged 34, for duping unsuspecting passengers.
It was gathered that the suspect was arrested on Friday, July 29, 2022 along Ipakodo road after his victim raised the alarm.
A police statement said an investigation revealed that the suspect, alongside his conspirators, who are still at large while operating in a Volkswagen Jetta saloon car with registration number JJJ 27 DG, disguised as driver and passengers, picked unsuspecting passengers, and started discussions about some money purportedly kept in the boot.
The suspect confessed to having started this crime in January, adding that he was arrested on his sixth outing.
The spokesperson of the Lagos state police command, Benjamin Hundeyin, added that “effort is in top gear to arrest other fleeing members of the gang and other perpetrators of such crime.”
“The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi, fdc has directed that the case be transferred to the headquarters for further investigations and prosecution.”
