Two notorious traffic robbery suspects who have been dispossessing road users along Maza Maza/Mile 2 road have been arrested by undercover operatives of the Lagos State Police Command posted to provide security for commuters along that route.

The two suspects, David Mike Okon, 32 and Ibe Okonne, 27, have been on the watch list of the command for sometime now.

They were arrested on 11 August, 2018 while robbing a lady identified simply as Oluwatosin around Mile 2.

The second suspect

They had succeeded in dispossessing the victim of her phone and other valuables before they were arrested by policemen attached to Raider team, Area E Command, Festac town, who witnessed the encounter.

The suspects in their statements to the police allegedly owned up to the crime while the stolen items have been returned to the owner.

To forestall incidences of traffic robbery along Maza Maza/Mile 2 and Oshodi/ Airport Road, the state Commissioner of Police Edgal Imohimi has deployed additional teams of undercover operatives and motorised patrol teams to beef up security in the area.
