Five armed robbers who gained entry to the house of a couple in Lokoja, Kogi state and prepared a meal while robbing the family have been arrested.
The robbers broke into the house in the middle of the night around 2am on the 28th of December. They then ransacked the house and raided the kitchen.
Chris Edime, the father who was fast asleep when the robbers gained access narrated his story to the police:
“They ordered us all to lie face down, 2 of them entered the kitchen to prepare food while two of them drove to the ATM to empty my account.”
The Assistant Superintendent of the police and a public relations officer William Aya gave an account of the police report:
