“On interrogation, the occupants, whose countenance was suspicious, were unable to give satisfactory information about the vehicle; hence the policemen put a call through to the owner, whose phone number was seen on the particulars, for further enquiries.
“Sensing that the game was up, one of the occupants took to his heels, while the other two were quickly apprehended.
“The owner of the vehicle was later contacted and he explained that the robbers invaded his house on Iriferiogoma Street, Lakowe Phase 2, Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos, where they forcefully dispossessed him of the vehicle.
“The two suspects were handed over to the DPO, Ogbere, for investigation.”
