Two blood brothers have been arrested after they led a gang of robbers to rob the company where they worked.
Their nemesis was in the form of Ogaga Pemu, the leader of the gang that robbed the shop, after he was arrested following a tip-off received by the Special Intelligence Bureau (SIB), of the State Police Command, that a he had arranged with someone to service his operational German pistol, as well as provide magazines for the weapon.
Pemu was tracked and arrested at Joe Baddy Hotel in Mende, Maryland and while in custody, he reportedly confessed to a series of armed robberies in the including the attack on Jumia where the gang looted N1.2 million cash, phones, laptops and clothes.
Pemu’s confession led to the arrest of the Daniel brothers. According to Pemu, the brothers gave them all the inside information his gang needed and also led them to the warehouse.
“We were six that participated in the robbery. Myself, Daniel the store keeper and his older brother, Hosea, Don Domie, Chris and another guy.
We got N1.2 million. I gave Hosea N400,000 for him and his brother. Their share was N200,000 each. I took N250,000, gave Don and Chris N200,000 each and gave the other guy who was a new person N150,000.
That operation was my fourth. I was arrested first and then I told the police how to get them and they were also arrested. But the other members have fled.”
The state Police Commissioner, Fatai Owoseni, while parading the suspects, said two locally made pistols, two cartridges and a locally-made magazine with two .9mm live ammunition were also recovered from the gang.
