Men Who Lure Sellers Of Expensive Phones Online And Rob Them At The Point Delivery Have Been Arrested

The operatives of Rapid Response Squad of
the Lagos State Police Command has
arrested four suspects who specialize in
tricking sellers of expensive mobile phones
pretending to be online buyers and thereafter
rob the sellers at the point delivery.
The suspects, Wilfred Ehis, 30; Bright Eloho,
24, Emeka Egbemedu, 22 and Olanrewaju
Kamilu, 33 were arrested on Wednesday
evening in Olamulti Hotel, New Site, Iba, Ojo,
Lagos.
The gangs had on 7th march, 2017 shot one
Sgt. Garba Kadiri, an RRS operative while
attempting to evade arrest when they were
tracked down by the officers in Pretty Street,
Iyana School, LASU – Iyana Road.
According to Ehis, a Chemical Engineering
graduate of University of Benin, Ekpoma,
Edo State,
“what I do is shop online for expensive
phones and goods. I request the sellers to
make home delivery.
I would send the delivery address to the
seller. When the seller gets to the address,
he would call me and I would control my
boys to go to the delivery address and rob
the seller.
I don’t follow them to the robbery scene. It
is only Nurudeen, alias “Onyeabo” that I
know carry out the execution. I know he has
a locally made short – gun. And, I am aware
he had recruited other boys to join him in
the robbery.
All I do is stay in hotels. I don’t even go out
at all. They do the robbery, sell the phones
and give me, my own share of the deal.”
Sources stated that Ehis has several gangs
who do his runs for him. The source added
that he was into internet fraud and ATM
point robbery. After his arrest, about 5
victims besieged RRS headquarters to give
information about the operation of the gang.
Two of such victims claimed they lost
N800,000 and N450,000 to him. Items
recovered from Ehis are 3 phones; 2 Wrist
watches, a Canon camera Eo87D; 1
necklace, 1 Sony laptop, a rap of Indian
Hemp and an ash colour Altima salon car.
