The Faces Of The Lekki Bank Robbers That Killed Three Policemen


The Nigerian police paraded the Lekki Bank Robbers that had attacked a bank along Admiralty Way, Lekki, killing three policemen and a teenage fish hawker in a deadly shoot-out.

It was also gathered that two Iphones stolen from the scene of robbery were recovered.

Meanwhile, efforts are still on to arrest other members of the gang that killed three police men and a female trader during their operation.

The gang members were arrested in Lagos, Osun, Ondo, Ogun and Delta State, after series of investigations that led them within and outside the country.

One of the Lekki Bank Robbers, an Ondo State indigene said 15 of them went for the operation and that he was the one that drove the speed boat that took the robbers to the crime scene and drove them after they had completed their operation.

"We were 15 in number that went for that operation and we used two speed boats. Five of us stayed back in the boat at Lekki while the other 10 went inside the bank. When they killed the policemen and two other civilians I queried them but they didn't listen. I am the speed boat driver that took the armed robbery gang to Lekki on March 12, 2015. I didn't want to go, they forced me, and after the operation, they gave me N50,000. I have not gone for robbery operation before now; I am into oil bunkering in Arepo along Lagos Ibadan expressway, a community in Ogun state. I know they were robbers when the contracted me to use my speed boat to convey them through the waterways to Lekki. I make money from oil bunkering between N50,000- N80,000 each time I go to work" he said.
