A robber has snatched a Toyota Corolla car using a toy gun and charms in the Anthony Village area of Lagos. The suspect, Emmanuel Ugbomah, pointed the toy at the car owner, Adebisi Olalekan, who surrendered the car and watched him drive off.
Eyewitnesses reportedly launched a pursuit during which it was discovered that he could not shoot. He was apprehended and handed over to the police at the State Anti Robbery Squad, SARS, State Command, Ikeja.
Ugbomah was said to have told police that he used the gun to snatch cars and the charms to instill fear in his victims. He also revealed that he had gang members, who were at large after hearing of his arrest.
He was charged before the Ikeja Magistrates’ Court for conspiracy and armed robbery under the Criminal Code. B O Osunsanmi, the presiding magistrate, ordered him to be remanded in prison and his file sent to Department of Public Prosecutions for advice.
