Two young men said to be among the criminal gangs behind armed robbery activities in several private hostels in Auchi, Edo State, have been arrested.

The two young men, whose names could not be ascertained as at the time of filing this report, were apprehended on Wednesday night by the joint effort of vigilante squads in a neighbouring Aviele community.

According to an eyewitness, many of Auchi Polytechnic students and  other residents in Auchi, South Ibie, Aviele, have fallen victims to their criminal activities.

A post by Auchi blogspot said one of the arrested suspected robber “is said to be from Esan but resides in Auchi while the other in red is an Agbede boy who acts as the pilot of their operations.
Both were recognized by a Hotel staff whose hostel they robbed some days back.

“They were at the Hotel (name withheld) in Aviele last night enjoying themselves when the lady who recognized them called on the Vigilante.

” Speaking with one of the squad members of the vigilante, #ABS was informed that they (these boys) are allegedly the ones that have been robbing students in their hostels across Sabo South-Ibie and other communities.

” The suspects have been handed over to the police division of Agbede.”

A local-made pistol, dagger, charms were said to have been recovered from the suspected criminals.
