Three suspects that specialized in monitoring bank customers, trailing them to their destinations, smashing vehicles when parked and robbing them of cash and other valuables have been arrested by the police in Enugu.

Enugu state commissioner of police CP Danmallam Mohammed while parading the suspects identified as Ukasoanya Julius, Ukasoanya Amadi and Agwube Oscar said that the suspects trailed one bank customer from the bank to a hotel in Enugu, broke into his car and carted away N11m he withdrew from the said bank and  fled away.

CP Danmallam disclosed that the command working on privileged information followed up the suspects through the hotel CCTV which captured how the car was broken and the cash carted away with the registration number of the three suspects operations vehicle.

”We followed up the suspects from the hotel which I wouldn’t disclose for investigation purposes till we apprehended this three while others are still at large” he said.

“The command have commenced investigations and the suspects will tell us how they carried out the robbery and what happened with the N11m. We have to close their bank accounts to find out what played out.”

He noted that Enugu state has been peaceful and assured the general public that hoodlums cashing on any trick to perfect their operations would never succeed in the state as the command has extended it’s dragnets’ to all nooks and crannies of the state.

Speaking to journalists in separate interviews while in chains at the police command headquarters in Enugu Julius Ukasoanya said that the three of them followed the victim directly from the bank to the hotel, allowed him park his vehicle and went into the hotel before we used iron to break the vehicle and stole the money.

“What we stole was N5 .5m from the vehicle. We entered the bank and saw when the lady cashier at the bank handed the money to our victim and we trailed him to the hotel to steal the money he collected from the bank.”

The suspect, Ukasoanya father of four children, said that he took to robbery last year but his first catch was the one the three of them has been arrested, adding that his share of the money was N1.7m which has been spent.

The second suspect Amadi Ukasoanya said that the three of them hailed from Umuaka Orlu village in Njaba local government area of Imo state while himself and Julius Ukasoanya are of same parents.

“We lived in Cameroon for the past eight years till the market in Cameroon got burnt, forced the three of us out of business there, we returned to Nigeria last December empty and organized to try robbery to survive and thereafter return to business. I am a furniture maker and doing well till Cameroon market burnt. I have never robbed before this is my first time. My share from the  Enugu operation was N1 9m. I am  a father of nine children from two wives, my first wife abandoned me with seven children while my second wife have two children making them nine.” he noted.

The third suspect Agwube Oscar said that the three of them came to Enugu for the purpose of robbery to see if they can make money and go back to business.

”We returned from Cameroon because of the problem of the market that burnt down. I am  a father of four children and our wives are in the village at Umuaka Orlu in Njiaba local government area of Imo state. My share of the money was N1. 9m which I used to send my brother to Europe. What we got from our victims vehicle was N5.5m, devil pushed us to robbery.The three of us came back from Cameroon last December out of frustration and poverty."
