Lagos - The gang that allegedly robbed the Festac branch of a popular online retailer, JUMIA, last October, has been arrested by the police.
The gang was arrested following a tip-off received by the Special Intelligence Bureau (SIB) that a member of the gang identified as Ogaga Pemu had arranged with someone to service his operational German pistol marked DO-94894891-COLT, and also provide magazines for the weapon.
Pemu was tracked and arrested at Joe Baddy Hotel in Mende, Maryland.
