A team of police officers attached to the Anti-Cultism unit of State Anti-Robbery Squad have been linked to the suspected robbery operation that took place at a popular hotel in Lagos.
The incident happened at the popular CY Hotel located at Governor’s Road at Ikotun, Lagos.
P.M.EXPRESS reports that the officers whose identities were not yet known, invaded the hotel in the evening with a bus and whisked a Nigerian resident in Ghana simply identified as Uche who came with his friend from Republic of Sierra Lone at gun point.
They reportedly ordered Uche to his room, searched the whole place acting as if he was a suspected criminal and cultist who might hide his weapons in the room. It was gathered that when they had searched everywhere and did not find any incriminating item, they carted away all the money they found in the room and left.
They had attempted to take Uche and his friend away before the owner of the hotel arrived, intervened and rescued the victims but was unable to recover their money.
According to Uche who claimed that he was a businessman and footballer, he came to Nigeria with his friend and lodged in the hotel. He explained that they were relaxing at the hotel’s balcony before the men who claimed to be from the Anti-Cultism unit attacked and intimidated them with their guns.
He narrated that two of the officers pointed their guns at him, marched him to his room and searched everywhere. And when they did not find anything except money, they carted away the money.
Uche said he was terrified mostly by the commando style they attacked and robbed them which made him doubt if they were police officers.
“All the money we had in the room was stolen and yet it was not enough for them. They beat and forced us to enter their waiting vehicle in order to take us away to an unknown place before the owner of the hotel intervened” Uche narrated.
When P.M.EXPRESS contacted the owner of the hotel, Ezewele Abionaojie, he confirmed the incident and said it was a pure case of robbery because the officers used their guns to intimidate the victims. Ezewele said that he did not know initially that the officers dragged the victims to their rooms and robbed them until after he had intervened and they had left.
He lamented that the action of the police officers disrupted activities in the hotel as his customers had to abandon the hotel and ran for safety. He said since then they had not returned and the hotel had suffered huge losses as a result. He said he had reported the matter to the Commissioner of Police and said he can identify some of the officers that came for the operation if need be.
When our correspondent contacted the Police Public Relation Officer, PPRO, Mr Famous-Cole for comments his phone was switched off. Some of the residents who witnessed what happened said they did not believe that the men were police officers because they did not come with police vehicle.

Lagos tenant uses Landlord’s apartment to dupe house appliance vendors of N50 million
Hey peepz, I have a gist tho I don’t know if it’s true or not..But I will say it Sha. I was just walking on the street 2receive fresh air when I saw a couple. d man was telling his wife about an incident. I kukuma slowed down an walked behind them to hear d full gist.
It was more like a scam story. A certain man walked up to a Landlord in our area and requested to rent his apartment for 2 months, with the excuse that he was traveling to Canada and just came to Lagos for the Visa Processing.. They agreed on 150K.
The man paid and took ownership of the apartment.He then went out to Vendors in town and negotiated to buy expensive items on lease. With installment payment plans.. He was said to have collected home appliance worth N50,000,000 from various vendors.
He then took them all to the apartment one by one to build trust. At least once they know he lives there, they can easily come around and pack their stuffs if he defaults, these people didn’t know what would hit them was going to be deadlier than Tsunami.
As agreed with the Landlord, the man packed out even earlier than expected… Left with all the items, of which he had not finished the payment..and the Landlord was so happy to have struck a better deal He immediately rented out the apartment to another family.
One by one, the creditors began to come in and same story was relieved to them.. Some fainted, some threatened hell fire …. To cut the long story short, Baba Ijebu was arrested alongside the new tenant.. You know Naija now… #POLICE no wan hear wuen
They were only saved after a Landlord intervened. He is a legal practitioner and took up the case. But sincerely speaking. I wonder how some people feel at rest knowing fully well their victims would suffer. I guess it all centers on lack of conscience. This is bad #dojon
