Photo: RRS nabs suspected armed robber after botched attempt to hijack uber taxi in Lagos

The operatives of Rapid Response Squad posted to Oshodi-Oke on early Friday morning, foiled an Uber taxi hijack by three armed robbers with the arrest of one suspect.

The suspect, Emmanuel John Ugbomah, 37, from Ndokwa, Delta State, was arrested in Oshodi Oke at 12:30 a.m while trying to escape after a botched attempt to hijack an uber taxi, a black Toyota Corrolla 2009 model, belonging to one Adebisi at Oshodi-Oke, Lagos.
The suspect, in company of two other accomplices had boarded Adebisi's uber taxi in Lekki. They reportedly told the victim they were going to Oshodi, to which he charged them N4,000. But on getting to Ikoyi, the trio told the driver to head to Dolphin where they said they were going to pick a lady friend.
According to Adebisi, 
“two of them came down from the vehicle and some minutes later they were back saying that the female friend was not going to join them and that he should keep driving to Oshodi-Oke…. When I was about to climb the Oshodi - Oke Bridge, one of them grabbed me from the back seat, another closed my mouth with his hand.
He continued,
 “A gun-like object was pointed at my head and they were shouting that I should come down and come to the back seat…. immediately I unbuckled the seat belt and opened the door, I saw some RRS policemen at the front. I screamed robbers! robbers! and ran towards them…. They immediately swung to action after I explained to them that my car was about to be stolen. They ran towards the direction of my car. They apprehended one but two escaped.”
The victim claimed his Tecno C8 phone and a sum of eighty thousand naira were missing by the time he was composed. He identified Ugbomah as one of the suspect.
The suspect claimed he was an automobile mechanics and was on his way from Lekki to Oshodi after he had gone to fix a broken down vehicle for a customer when he was apprehended by the police at some minutes past midnight.
Recovered from him at the point of arrest were charms, master key and a pistol shaped device. 
The suspect has been transferred to Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Ikeja for further investigations.
