Few weeks ago, it was reported that a 20 year-old man, Rilwan Wasiu, who was arrested by operatives of Rapid Response Squad, RRS, of the Lagos State Police Command for being in possession of toy gun, allegedly confessed his gang members used to rob stranded motorists around Adeniji Adele end of the Third Mainland Bridge.
Wasiu, who hail from Oyo State, was arrested last week Thursday, at Adeniji Adele under bridge around 10 p.m. during a scuffle with his girlfriend. The officers according to report sighted the suspect beating his girlfriend late at night by the road side. The officers stopped to mediate in the dispute when a toy gun fell off the body of the suspect. The suspect had attempted to run away immediately the toy gun fell off his body but he was promptly apprehended and taken to the RRS headquarters in Alausa, Ikeja.
According to the suspect, “I found it where I was sleeping under Adeniji Adele Bridge. I picked it up to go and destroy it before the misunderstanding with my girlfriend.”
However, on further interrogation, the suspect confessed that he is one of a 3–man robbery team specialized in dispossessing stranded motorists and passers-by of their belongings around Adeniji Adele end of Third Mainland Bridge.
