Christmas is a few weeks away and armed robbers have started devising new strategies to carry out their end-of-the-year attacks to meet up.
Operatives of the Nigeria Police Force are not slacking either as they continue to tighten their own game.
The Ondo State Police Command has arrested the leader of a three-man armed robbery gang who reportedly attacked a mother of four, Folashade Jayeoba, and held her children hostage while they led her to the ATM to withdraw N90,000 after she complained of having no cash at home.
It was gathered that the leader of the gang , a 23-year-old identified as Samuel Ayodele requested for the victims ATM card after the victim complained of having no cash at his residence in Akure where she was attacked.
The State Police Commissioner, Hilda Harrison, while parading the suspects said they invaded the house of the victim and robbed her of valuables, including a flat-screen television.
He said: “They abducted the victim and her four children and led them to Keystone Bank in Alagbaka, Akure, where she was forced to withdraw N90,000.
“They collected the money from the victim before she and the children were set free by the suspects.”
The victim alerted the police about the incident which later led to the arrest of the leader of the gang at Gaga Oke-Aro area in Akure.
The suspect confessed to the crime and the police consequently recovered the victim’s items from his house.
