Hundeyin said the arrest followed the launch of an investigation after receipt of a report on August 7 that hoodlums stole a 2010 Lexus RX 350 SUV, 2006 Toyota Camry saloon car, an iPhone and other valuables at gunpoint.
He added, “Three locally made pistols, one locally made semi-automatic pistol and 12 live cartridges were recovered from the gang.
“Investigations reveal that the suspects were notorious for robbing their victims of their valuables and vehicles along the Iba-Igando-Egbeda axis of Lagos State. Efforts are ongoing to arrest their receiver of stolen goods, and possible recovery of other items stolen by the gang in the past. Suspects will be arraigned at the end of investigation.”
