Following the daring robberies that took place in Offa Kwara state in April, the Police have made fresh arrests of people who are believed to have been connected to the crime.

The robbery attack known as one of the worst of its time, hit five banks and left at least 30 people dead.

The operatives of the Intelligence Response Team led by a Deputy Commissioner of Police and Super cop, Abba Kyari, have now made more arrests.

According to the Punch, the fresh arrests were made in Kwara, Oyo and Kogi states and these suspects are now helping the police in their quest to uncover more of the accomplices.

However, the Punch’s source refused to give the number of suspects arrested.

It was also reported that dangerous firearms were recovered in the process from the suspects including two AK 47 rifles.

The source said, “The fresh suspects belonged to the Michael Adikwu’s gang, the dismissed policeman and an ex-convict. He actually led our men to the hideout of the men where they were arrested.”

It has been reported that following the arrest of the suspects they will then be transported to Abuja where they will be paraded before the media and then a better idea of the number of suspects arrested can be known.
