The police in Edo State have arrested four persons who disguised as military officers over armed robbery and cultism.

Parading the suspects in Benin, the command’s spokesperson, Chidi Nwanbuzor, said the suspects were arrested following a petition to the police commissioner by one Grace Ainabe over a robbery incident in her house.

Chidi said the suspects, Iyabo Victor (35), Osas Aganmwonyi (28), Nosa Owie (24) and Idi Etukudo, all in military camouflage, broke into the house located in Teboga community, off Lucky Way, Benin City, and stole the complainant’s belongings, including money.

He said, “The suspects entered her house through the POP ceiling and robbed the entire family of its belongings and forcefully transferred the sum of N447,000.00 from her account.”

According to him, after transferring, they changed the money to foreign currency and shared it among themselves before they were arrested.

Chidi listed the stolen items recovered from the suspects to include Iphone 13, Iphone 6, jewelry, table fan, standing fan and air conditioning system.
