The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr Kayode
Aderanti, weekend, said that the command had clue of
who the robbers that stormed a second generation
bank last Thursday, killing three policemen and a
teenager, were, assuring that it would soon round
them up.
This is just as the Inspector-General of Police,
Suleiman Abbah, has given matching orders to the
Police in Lagos to re-strategise, in order to ensure that
armed robbers do not unleash terror again in the state.
Investigation as gathered had begun by joint crack
detectives from the Special Anti Robbery Squad, SARS
and those from the newly instituted Tactical Operation
Unit.
The operatives as gathered would also spread their
dragnet to neighbouring Benin Republic where the
fleeing armed men were suspected to have taken
refuge.
Impeccable police sources hinted that part of the on
going investigation included the monitoring of the
video footage of the robbery operation recorded by an
onlooker.
Aderanti who was at the scene of the robbery incident,
described the death of his men as unfortunate, adding
that they (policemen ) were not even attached to the
bank where the gunmen stormed but acted gallantly to
prevent the hoodlums from carrying out their devilish
act.
Also reacting to   the development, Force Public
Relations Officer, Ag. Commissioner of Police,
Emmanuel Ojukwu disclosed; ”It’s a terrible
development. We will see to the end of it. We must get
them. You should know that for a long time we have
not had that kind of bank robbery in Lagos State. That
is why the Inspector-General of Police, Suleiman
Abbah, has given the command matching orders to re-
strategise in order to ensure that it does not occur
again.”
