He added: “Three locally made pistols, one locally made semi-automatic pistol, and 12 live cartridges were recovered from the gang. Investigations reveal that the suspects were notorious for robbing their victims of their valuables and vehicles along the Iba-Igando-Egbeda axis of Lagos State. Efforts are ongoing to arrest the criminal receiver of stolen goods and possible recovery other items stolen by the gang in the past. Suspects will be arraigned at the end of the investigation.”BEWARE All Rights Reserved.
