Police Arrest Notorious Armed Robber “Small”, Arsonist In Lagos


Lagos State Police comman has arrested one Fatai Ismai m, 23, aka small, a notorious armed robber who has been terrorising residents of Langbasa Area, Ajah Lagos State.

Fatia was arrested by the police, with the help of some community members, when he went to attack a supermarket at Folarin Bus Stop, Ajah Area on 29th November, 2020.

The suspect, who confirmed to be a cultist, was arrested by the police command in 2017 for similar offence and charged to court. He was arrested with one locally made pistol, with some cartridges, which he claimed was procured from a man (name withheld) who is presently at large.

In the same vein, the command has arrested nine (9) arsonists that set ablaze Ajeromi Ifelodun Local Government Secretariat on 20th October, 2020 during the recent violent Endsars protest in Lagos State. The suspects included Abdulganiyu Habeeb, m, 30, Adetunji Senyi, m, 27, Ahmed Animashahun, m, 28, Alowonle Lawal,m, 28, Taiwo Nuah, m, 19, and four others.

In addition, the operatives attached to the State CID of the command have arrested the duo of Precious Chukwu, f, 22 and Ujunwa Offiah, f, 18, for conspiring with one Ifesinachi Blessed, m, 26, of Coker area Lagos State, to stage a kidnapping case.

The duo are girlfriends to the mastermind, Ifesinachi, who is a UBER driver but presently at large.

The fleeing suspect, Ifesinachi, has kept Ujunwa at a place and placed calls across to her family that she had been kidnapped.

He pretended as a kidnapper and demanded for ransom of 30 million naira. They eventually negotiated, with the help of his other girlfriend, Precious Chukwu, and agreed to pay him #700,000 (seven hundred thousand naira only) before he “released” Ujunwa.

The police swung into action and later discovered that it was a staged kidnapping, and there were immediately arrested. The commissioner of Police Lagos State has ordered that the feeling suspect be arrested.
