The arrest of the suspects follows a painstaking, diligent and discreet investigation ordered and closely monitored by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi. The suspects were traced to their hideout at Oju-irin Abattoir, Lagos State where they were eventually arrested. Items recovered from the suspects are two locally made pistols with 11 live cartridges. It would be recalled that the armed gang invaded Mambillah Hotel, robbing guests of their valuables and shooting dead the hotel security guard in their bid to escape after the Police arrived at the scene. The earlier arrested supervisor and other staff of the hotel have since been released after further investigations cleared them of any culpability. Suspects are to be arraigned in court as the investigation is currently being wound up.”BEWARE All Rights Reserved.
