Informed police sources revealed that the former senator’s son from Ekiti State had led a gang of armed robbers to rob at 6:19:02 pm to attack a colonel, names withheld, at Mbora Estate, where his AK-47 rifle and other valuable items were allegedly stolen.
The source disclosed that the robbery operation, which took place on July 5, resulted in the arrest of the ex-senator’s son, names withheld.
The sources said that in the process of investigation, operatives from the Special Anti -Robbery Squad working on information, subsequently arrested the suspect and while a search was conducted in his house around Life Camp area, Abuja, 16 live cartridges and some other incriminating exhibits were recovered from the suspect’s house.
During interrogation, the suspect was alleged to belong to a notorious armed robbery gang that had been terrorizing the FCT and its environs.
The suspect reportedly told his investigators that his friend, an Igbo boy, brought the gun and the cartridges to his house and that the boy had gone back to the East with the intention of bringing more arms and ammunitions.
He, however, denied participating in the robbery attack on the colonel’s house at Mbora Estate.
He confessed that the said Igbo boy had earlier brought two laptop computers collected from the owners at gun point to him, which he sold at the GSM Village, Abuja.
The ex-senator who is a member of the People’s Democratic Party was elected into the senate in 2011.
