Ex-soldiers Arrested For Robbery After EndSARS
Robbery suspects arrested in connection with the attack on a bullion van and killing of four policemen in Ebonyi State in July have explained how their gang leader, one Clement Abanara aka Millions, planned their operations from Ikoyi prison, Lagos, where he is remanded.
The suspects are two dismissed soldiers, Ayeni Samuel and Emeka Ariston, Abanara’s cousin, Alfred Robinson and four others identified as Sunday Solemu, Abuchi Alfred, Emeka Ilo and Ekene Igbanifore.
They were apprehended recently by operatives of the Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team while they were reportedly planning to rob a commercial bank in Asaba, Delta State.
A general-purpose machine gun, six AK-47 rifles, 51 magazines, 1,620 rounds of live ammunition, two vehicles, and charms, were said to have been recovered from them.
The police said the gang collected the vehicles, a Toyota Lexus and a 4Runner, from their owners, who were kidnapped in Owerri, Imo State and released after payment of N5m as ransom.
Abanara allegedly took part in bank robberies in Lekki, Ikorodu, Festac and Agbara areas of Lagos, where millions of naira were carted away.
In an interview with journalists during the week, the dismissed soldiers said they were looking for money to support their families when a friend, who is serving a jail term in Ikoyi prison, introduced them to Abanara.
One of them, Ayeni, said, “I joined the Nigeria Army in 2003 and I was dismissed because I took part in an illegal duty. After my dismissal in 2014, I had no job then I was introduced to Millions (Abanara) who is in prison. He linked me up with his cousin Robinson. Millions said he wanted me to provide military cover during operations and I brought in my colleague, Ariston.
“We went for the operation in our uniforms. We were unlucky the bullion van escaped from the scene. I also took part in a robbery operation in Awka, Anambra, the next day and I got N150,000 as my share. I was arrested while we were making plans to rob another bullion van in Asaba.”
Robinson said the gang members opened fire on the policemen escorting the bullion van because they were caught unaware.
He stated after the failed operation, they proceeded to Akwa, Anambra, where they robbed a recharge card dealer of N7.5m and other valuables.
