Armed robbers prepare food, eat and merry in a couple's house in Lokoja, Kogi State


There must be some very hungry Armed robbers in town now, as this set of robbers were arrested by police in Lokoja, Kogi State, while the couple who happened to be the victim claimed they had fun and cool merriment during the robbery in their house as they entered the kitchen to prepare food and ate.

The five suspects were said to have invaded the house of the couple on December 28, at about 2 am while the family was asleep.

The husband, Chris Edime, who narrated his ordeal to journalists at the police headquarters in Lokoja during a parade of the suspects, said he was awoken by the noise of the robbers who gained entry into the children’s room and looted the house.

“They ordered all of us to lie face down; two of them entered the kitchen to prepare food, while two of them drove me to an ATM to empty my account,” he added.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, William Aya, an Assistant Superintendent of Police, said Edume reported to the command that the gunmen stole his Infinity G 35X salon car and household appliances.

He said the Department of State Services, Lokoja, synergised with operatives of the command to arrest the perpetrators.

“Investigations led to the arrest of one Mohammed Ibrahim in Lagos, from whom the car was recovered,” Aya said.

Other members were named as Mohammed Kabiru, Musa Mohammed, Emmanuel Audu and Yale Yunusa.
