A three-member syndicate that specializes in duping unsuspecting passengers has been arrested by officers of the Ojodu Division of the Lagos State Police Command.

Members of the syndicate were identified as Abiodun Bamidele ‘m’ aged 48, Olumide Faleye ‘m’ aged 45, and Toyin Adekoya ‘f’ aged 49.

The suspects were arrested at about 10.30hrs on Friday, September 23, 2022, at Omole Estate Phase 1 after their victim raised an alarm.

The modus operandi of the suspects who operated with a Toyota Camry car, with registration number KSF 608 GH, is to disguise as driver and passengers, pick unsuspecting passengers, and start discussions about some dollars purportedly kept in the boot.

Confirming their arrest, the spokesperson of the state police command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said police investigation reveals that the gang started this crime in January. He said the suspects have since been arraigned.
