Accoring to Punch Metro, Emmanuel Audu, James Momoh, Sunday Onuh and two former policemen; Sgt.Ochigbo Gabriel and Sgt. Francis Onuh hung their heads, trying their best to show remorse. They suspects all wore mournful looks in the line-up, but no one would have readily known that three of them used to be policemen. A police officer who is being made to answer for his really criminal acts has made a shocking confession.
The police in Lagos have paraded some armed robbery suspects.
The former policemen among the suspects had been dismissed from the force for different offences. They later took up the tools of armed robbery.
Audu told journalists that shortly after he lost his job, he relocated to Lagos and became a dispatch rider until December last year when he was looking for a job and met Peter Owocho, another member of the gang who introduced him to the gang.
He said he partook in all the operations carried out by the gang, and that he used his share of their loot to took his family and pay his children’s school fees.
“I live at Ikorodu with my family. I took part in all the operations, but I was arrested on June 7, 2016 by the police,” he said.
A police source told journalists that before members of the gang were arrested by operatives of the Inspector-General Police Special Intelligence Response Team, the suspects specialised in robbing Chinese nationals in different parts of Lagos State.
The source said before they met their waterloo during an operation at the homes of four Chinese nationals in Gbagada, the suspects had carried out no fewer than 10 robberies between December 2015 and June 2016
Audu, 33, said he joined the Nigeria Police in 2003 but was dismissed as a constable in 2009 over his involvement in some illegal activities in Warri, Delta State.
