In a bid to curtail crime rate in Lagos State, the operatives of the Rapid Response Squad ( RRS) of the State Police Command,  have arrested one member of a three- man robbery gang using motor bike to rob commercial buses in Mile 2 and Apapa in the state.
The suspect, Ese Ebrorhie, 28, from Agbaru, Delta State, was arrested during a botched operations over the weekend in Mile 2 with other two members of his gang escaping with a locally made double barrel gun and a pistol
Ebrorhie stated that he joined the gang about two months ago because he was helpless.
In his confessional statement to the Police, he said, he joined the robbery syndicate to source for livelihood.
"I bought a fairly used motorcycle popularly known as okada which developed small problem and there was nobody to help me, so I joined the gang to raise funds to repair the okada"
The suspect explained how his gang usually perpetrated their crime," We operated at dawn around 5:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. and at night from 9:00 p.m.We rob only commercial buses by pretending to be passengers at bus stop around Mile 2 and Apapa.
'Once inside the bus, the gang leader simply identified as Zubby, who is holding one of our guns, will hold the bus driver hostage while we began to rob and dispossess every passenger of their belongings. 
'After the operation, we disembarked and mount our waiting bike moving beside the bus to escape.
 
"I have gone on three operations with them. The first operation, I was given N8, 000. The second one, I was given N15, 000.00. This is my third operation with the gang. Zubby, is the one that collects and sells all the belongings we collect during operations. He is the one who share the booty to everyone", he added.
'I live in Takwa Bay, Snake Island. Before every robbery operation, we converged at Berger. Most of our victims mistake us for passengers. When I asked Zubby where he got the guns, he told me that he bought them. Zubby is an Igbo while Emmanuel is from Calabar’, he said.

He noted that he knew the gang since he came to Lagos as a car washer but didn’t know they were armed robbers then. "They invited me to the operation whenever they wish. Sometimes, I can be in Berger for two days without seeing them", he added.
