Two men, suspected to be armed robbers carrying guns were arrested on Sunday morning at a motor park in Gwagwalada, FCT. A witness, simply identified as Daniel, said the arrest happened at about 11:00a.m. when the two suspects came to board a vehicle at Wazobia motor park on Abuja-Lokoja road
He said the two suspects allegedly concealed the guns in their clothes, saying one of the motor park workers who was loading an unmarked bus suddenly saw the gun as one of the suspects was trying to board the bus.
He said the worker alerted the police and plain clothes detectives were sent to the garage and they arrested the suspects.
It was learnt that a mob at the motor park manhandled and inflicted injuries on the suspects who claimed to be travelling to Benin, before the police arrived the scene and took them into custody.
When contacted, the Gwagwalada Divisional Police Officer (DPO), CSP David Kolo, confirmed the arrest of the two suspects.
He said the suspects were transferred to the police command yesterday.
“Actually, the two suspects arrested at the motor park with guns were still at the division, until Wednesday, after preliminary investigation when we will now transfer them to the FCT police command for further action,” he said.
