Policemen attached to the Lagos Rapid Response Squad on Sunday foiled an attempt to snatch a patrol motorcycle in Ikeja.

A 19-year-old suspect, Akinjobi Wahab, was arrested while four accomplices escaped.

The command’s Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday.

Hundeyin stated that the officers were on a patrol in plain clothes when the machete-wielding suspect tried to snatch their patrol bike.

He wrote, “Rapid Response Squad operatives in plain clothes, patrolling on a motorcycle, have arrested a robbery suspect, Akinjobi Wahab, aged 19 while trying to snatch their motorcycle.

“The machete-wielding suspect was arrested at about 4am on Acme Road, Agidingbi, Ikeja in company of four others now at large.

“This is coming on the heels of the emplacement of regular foot and vehicular patrols in the area by the Commander RRS, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi, in response to repeated complaints that robbers operate around Agidingbi, Ikeja very early mornings.”
