“The Command wishes to inform members of the public of a family syndicate who specialises in robbing unsuspecting ladies. Members of the syndicate posed as workers and offer to help ladies who have closed from work.
“They, thereafter, rob them of their valuables. After painstaking intelligence, the suspects were arrested at their hideout in Aguda, Surulere,” the commissioner said.
Chinedu Onunkwo, one of the suspect’s children, told journalists that their family“is not a family of robbers. The car the police are talking about is for our mother but we are not involved in the robbery. I think it was a set-up by those who don’t like us.”
