A combined team of policemen from Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, and Adeniji Adele Police Division has smashed a suspected robbery gang terrorizing residents of Lagos Island, Lagos State, southwest Nigeria.

The police team who had been on the trail of the gang launched a massive attack on the gang on Sunday which lasted for several hours on the Island.

We learnt that the leader of the gang known as Gani Mental along with two other suspected robbers were killed as a result of the injures they sustained during the exchange of fire with the police while four members of the gang were arrested and detained at SARS.

Before they were rounded up by the detectives, the suspected robbers who were heavily armed with assorted firearms shot two policemen simply identified as Olamide and Jide attached to Adeniyi Adedeji Division. While Olamide died on the spot, Jide sustained  injuries and was still receiving treatment in an undisclosed hospital as at the time of filing this report.

According to residents, the gang was well known on the Island for its activities including breaking into shops and carting away goods as well as collecting sales proceeds from traders at gun point.
The residents said they reported the gang to the SARS when their criminal activities on the island became unbearable. Read More..
