Security operatives have arrested two women and a man for engaging in alleged robbery.
The suspected criminals were arrested by the Bayelsa State Vigilante Service for allegedly robbing a 15-year-old girl, Boma Sunday.
The three suspects, Godwin Sunday, 28, and two females, Anna Samuel, 21, and Better Okorie, 23, were nabbed on Wednesday, April 28, after they allegedly stole N5000 from the victim at the ever busy Tombia Market in Yenagoa Local Government Council.
According to the teenage girl, she was standing by roadside close to the market, waiting to board a tricycle that would take her home after buying all she needed when the three member gang accosted her and collected her money on a broad day light.
“After they collected the money I raised alarm that drew the attention of the vigilante. I didn’t even know that they were around. It was at that point I saw them chasing the criminals and apprehended them close to the roundabout as they tried to escape.” she added.
