UPDATE!!! Offa Bank robbers caught by the phones they gave their girlfriends

Published

There is a saying that, every man has a weak point even the toughest. This is the case of robbery which took place at Offa. Read full story here. The armed robbers invaded several banks and made away with phones and money. But as Karma would have it, the robbers were all apprehended by the phones they stole and handed over to their girlfriends.

The 12 criminals currently being interrogated by Police operatives in Kwara State over the recent bank robbery in Offa were arrested by tracking the phones the robbers collected from victims and gave their girlfriends, police has said. After interrogation with the ladies, robbers were arrested at Ibadan, Lagos and Abeokuta.

According to Vanguard, after the Offa bank robbery operation, the suspects took away the handsets of the victims, which they gave out to their girlfriends. LOL.
Police officials of the robbed banks were also said to have handed over the police all handsets found within their premises after the robbery.
Records revealed that the armed robbers had been in and out of jail several times and that they regrouped for that operation.

The robbery attack on the banks would have been averted if not for the compromise of some policemen who were pre-warned.

According to the owner of the hotel where the bandits lodged a day before they struck, he had informed the Divisional Police Officer, DPO, in the town over the discoveries of some incriminating materials on the bandits while they were checking into his hotel.

The DPO and Divisional Crime Officer, DCO, immediately sent some officers to the hotel.
But instead of arresting the suspects, the police officers negotiated with the bandits, and “the bandits offered the officers N400,000 shut-your-mouth.”

When the policemen returned to the station, they lied to the DPO and DCO that the bandits were Yahoo boys and not robbers as claimed by the hotel owner.

Vanguard says a source told them:

“It was not surprising that the robbers visited the police station the following day and killed about nine policemen in retaliation for collecting N400,000 from them.”

The bandits made decision to kill the policemen during the robbery attack with the notion that if they didn’t kill them, they might recognise them during their operation and this might spell doom for them at the end.
Although, the Police has arraigned the owner of the hotel before a magistrate court in Ilorin last week for conspiracy in the attack, sources told Vanguard the owner challenged the DPO and DCO in Offa to deny if he had not informed them about the bandits when they lodged in his hotel before the attacks on the banks.

Also arraigned alongside the hotelier last week were the accountant, a receptionist, a room keeper and a club house operator of the hotel.
They were arraigned on a two-count charge of criminal conspiracy and causing disappearance of evidence and giving false information to screen an offender.

Police said the offences contravened Sections 97 and 167 of the Penal Code.

After taking submissions from the Police and defence counsel, the magistrate, Mrs. M. B. Folorunso adjourned the case till May 3 for further hearing. Meanwhile, spokesman of Kwara State Police Command, Ajayi Okasanmi, told Vanguard yesterday that he was not aware of such information. His words:

“If the hotelier actually gave the Police information about the suspects in his hotel, why didn’t he deny them lodging? To me, it is an afterthought.”

Nigeria my Nigeria, see how corruption has eaten deep into the nuke and cranny.

Good news to rescue victims of Boko Haram group.

Why do you think the Nigerian Army burnt the Boko Haram food ?

In my own point of view, there is no genuine reason to destroy the resources that would have been of benefit to those victims.
