He said the surveillance policemen were deployed in different parts of the State following complaints by motorists about incessant traffic robbery attacks.

Part of the statement read: “The surveillance team was on a decoy at about 6:30am beside ‘Abiola Garden’ when the suspected criminals came out with dangerous weapons in an attempt to rob the policemen, demanding for their wallets and other valuables before they were all apprehended.

“One of the suspected robbers, identified as Abdulahi Olalere a.k.a ‘Orobo’, also confessed that his gang was responsible for the early morning robbery attacks on innocent motorists around China Town and tipper garage by Ketu area of Ikorodu Road on Tuesday, March 23.”
