Operatives of the Inspector General of Police Special Intelligence Response Team, IRT, weekend, in Benin, Edo State, reportedly arrested a leader of a gang of bank robbers, who usually disguised as a woman during operations.
The alleged leader of the notorious gang of bank robbers, Clement Abanara, was arrested by the police in an apartment at the Osayande Estate.
Vanguard gathered that the suspect, also known as Million, allegedly took part in the Lekki, Ikorodu, Festac and Agbara bank robberies (all in Lagos), where his gang carted away millions of naira, destroyed several vehicles and left several persons, including policemen and a pregnant woman, dead.
The IRT, led by CSP Abba Kyari, had in November 2015, launched a manhunt for the bank robbers. Kelly Fotor, one of the suspects arrested at a wedding in Sapele, Delta State, had told Vanguard that Million was the only member of the gang who disguised as a woman during operations.
Fotor also told Vanguard that Million is an experienced kidnapper, who has over eight rifles in his possession.
