The Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos State Police Command on Monday arrested three robbers in an attack in Lagos.
The Unit, in a post on its Twitter handle, said the gang accosted a woman in Lekki Phase 1 and robbed her of her phone, but luck eluded them as they were apprehended timely.
The suspects were identified as ex-convicts, one of whom was released from prison just last week.
“RRS operatives have arrested three Robbers, two of which are ex-convicts for robbing a pedestrian of her phone in Lekki Phase 1,” the tweet said.
“Funny thing is one of them just got out of jail a week ago.
The three robbers have been transferred to State Anti Robbery Section pending further investigations.
