A female once-chance robbery gang member has been arrested in Abuja.
A female member of a robbery syndicate that operate using taxis and buses in the Federal Capital Territory, called 'One-Chance' has been arrested by the police in Kubwa, Bwari Area Council of the FCT, Daily Trust reports.
The 25-year-old suspect, Blessing Opara, was nabbed alongside one of her male accomplices while attempting to rob their victim inside an unpainted Toyota Carina vehicle in the area.
It was gathered that the victim identified as Uloma, boarded a vehicle carrying four passengers at the Second Gate in Kubwa to the city centre when the incident happened.
The victim who told the police that she had once fallen prey to one of such ‘one chance' syndicates, became suspicious when passengers asked the driver to stop him around a non-designated bus stop.
Immediately the man made the request, the woman quickly demanded to alight from the vehicle but the suspects tried to push her back into the vehicle, at the same time struggling to collect her handbag, when they noticed a police patrol van behind them.
On noticing the police, the suspects rushed out of the vehicle and fled on foot but Opara was not that lucky as the police chased after her and grabbed her and her other counterpart.
