Lagos - The Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad in Lagos on Monday arrested six suspected members of an armed robbery gang, which specialised in stealing exotic cars.
The Force Police Public Relations Officer, ACP Frank Mba, paraded the suspects, and some exhibits recovered from them in Lagos.
The police spokesman alleged that the gang specialised in stealing exotic cars from different parts of the country and disposing of them in neighbouring countries.
According to him, items recovered from the suspects include 17 different exotic cars, two locally made single-barrel pistols and ammunition.
Operatives led by a Deputy Commissioner of Police, Chris Ezike, arrested the suspects in Ekiti, Abuja and Lagos.
“The confession of the suspect in Lagos led to the arrest of a 28-year-old man, who claimed to be a political thug in Ekiti," Mba said.
